Bollo said that despite struggling with his swing, he will be doing his best to defend the title that will be sponsored by Post Bank.

“Am still fighting with my swing and its getting better every single day. I have new golf sets which I bought recently that has boosted my morale too,” said Bollo.

The title defendin champion has claimed two wins of the meeting in 2014 and 2016 and wants a hat trick on the course.

“I have won the meeting two times and my return to the course, I can brag and and I still have a chance to win despite having strong opponents like Kisia (Mike) who is op top form,” said Bollo adding that Mudanyi (Edwin), Owiti (Robinson), Nandwa (Alfred), karichu (John), Kubwa (Jeff) and Saikwa (Dennis) are on top form and will pose a great challenge.

According to the draw released by Kitale club captain Fandi Shiyukah, Bollo will be teeing off at 9:00am. Shiyukah will play alongside Bollo, B. Cheruiyot and Kenya Golf Union Western representative Andrew Chelogoi.

Shiyukah said having such big event on the course will be a great for both the club and its environs.
