Kipp Popert win G4D Tour at magical Kenya at Muthaiga

Kipp Popert won the Golf For Disability (G4D) Tour at the ongoing Magical Kenya Open at the par 71 Muthaiga golf club.

“I have honestly enjoyed every second of my two days on this course. I also enjoyed a tricky course which I was able to adapt to, in record speed,” Popert added.

The Englishman opened the two-round event at Muthaiga with a five-under-par 66 and followed it up with a 69 on Tuesday to finish five shots ahead of nearest challenger Australia’s Lachlan Wood.

It is the first G4D Tour title Popert has won in the 2023/24 season and the first victory on the circuit’s maiden visit to Africa means he has now won across three continents, having previously won in Europe and Australia.

Playing alongside Australia’s Wood, the G4D Tour’s previous Gross winner at the ISPS Handa Australian All Abilities, Popert mixed five front-nine birdies with two blemishes to hit the turn at eight under par.

Major champion Brendan Lawlor carded a 74 to finish solo third at two over, one shot better than American Chris Biggins.

The G4D Tour is scheduled to resume its campaign with the second edition of the G4D Open at Woburn Golf Club from May 15-17, when Lawlor will defend his title.
