At least 100 golfersare expected to tee off at the Eldoret Golf Club this Saturday for the seventh edition of the Road to Gleneagles Johnnie Walker Golf Series.
The golfers, who will play in the competition’s four-ball, stableford format at the par 72 Eldoret Golf Club course, will tee off starting 0700 Hours.
The golfers will battle it out at the 9-hole, par 70 golf course as they aim to make the cut for the series’ semi-finals dubbed the Eagles’ Round to be played at Muthaiga Golf Club. This will then be followed with the Grand Finale where a fully paid trip to the iconic Gleneagles Golf Course in Scotland will be up for grabs.
The event follows the Sigona Golf Club leg played on 15th January where Home player Sam King’ori led Roy Njau, Peter Waweru, and George Gitau to card a combined 114 Stableford points to emerge the overall winners of the leg. Their nearest challengers were the team comprising Sawan Shah, Gurtej Phull, Milka Mburu and Sawan Raikundalia whose efforts returned a score of 113 Stableford points. Claiming third place was the team of Sophie Liu, Rima Patel, Dr. Mary Wainaina, and Zipporah Wachira who hit 108 stableford points.
The three joined the list of teams that have already qualified to play in the next round.
Speaking ahead of the tournament, KBL Marketing Manager for Spirits Josephine Katambo said; “This has been a great competitive tournament. Since we began in January, we have seen the great progression of strength to strength, and we are looking forward to the remaining events as we take the momentum of the event over to those other clubs.
