The KCB Road To Karen Masters
has been to Sigona Golf Club, Nakuru Golf Club, Nyali Golf and Country
Club,Thika Sports Club-and now Royal Nairobi.
The pros started their campaign in the second round after the opening round at Sigona coincided with the Safari Tour Golf Series.
A total of 24 amateur golfers
have so far qualified for the Karen Masters Pro-Am with the last six set
to be determined this Saturday.
The most exciting bit of the amateur competition in the Road To Masters has been the wildcard which has since been determined by the host clubs .
Some clubs like Nyali and Sigona have resorted to a lucky dip of cards to pick the wildcard slot. Others like Nyali and Thika have preferred to hand the wildcard slot to juniors.
It will be interesting to see who takes the fifth wildcard at Royal Nairobi this weekend.
Whatever is up the sleeves of the amateur players this weekend will be known during prize giving on Saturday.
