Thika Sports Club’s Peter Rimui has set his focus in defending his Coronation Trophy, the Kenya Amateur Golf Championships (KAGC) meeting on par 72 Nakuru golf course.
Rimui, who has not been performing well in the KAGC meetings managed to finish third during Mount Kenya Championships in Nyeri, but his swing has not been yielding much needed results.
Traveling to Nakuru over the weekend, the 7th leg of KAGC will be good for the Kiambu County based golfer who is aiming to defend his title where top amateur golfers will be in search of points in the 19 round of golf circuit across the country.
The amateur golfers will compete in the 54-hole circuit with 36 holes played on Saturday and Sunday they will be competing in eighteen holes.
Last year Rimui played three over 219 to emerge victorious. He started with three in the opening 18 before playing level on his return to complete the day with three over 147 on the opening day. The last 18 holes, he played level to emerge victorious.
“I will be on the course to defend my title and right now, am working and improve on my swings,’ said Rimui.
When the meeting was played on his home club, the Winston Churchill, he managed to finish a distance 15th but that will not deter his achievements over the weekend.
“Right now am working on how to chip on the greens which is very crucial,” added Rimui who said his main challengers included Railway club’s Alfred Nandwa, Limuru’s Samuel Njoroge among others.
