Ugandan Ronald Rugumayo joined round three leaders at the ongoing safari Tour Golf series at the Vipingo Ridge in Kilifi.
Rugumoyo now leads alongside Greg Snow and Mutahi Kibugu ahead of tomorrow’s final round in the four hole tournament in the chase for Magical Kenya slot next year.
During yesterday’s third round, the Ugandan Rugumayo who finished second in his country’s Open at the Lake Victoria Serena Golf Resort, shot one under par to bring his scores to four over par 220 to tie at the top with round one leader Greg Snow and Muthaiga Golf Club’s Mutahi Kibugu.
Rugumayo who joined the tour in 2019 after turning professional said he was pleased with his performance so far. “My game has been improving gradually from the time I joined the tour until a month ago when I finished second at Lake Victoria, and I believe it’s a matter of time before I finish at the top’’ said Rugumayo who picked up a doble-bogey at the par three-eighth after hitting a bad shot, having also dropped shots at the third, and two birdies at the second and fourth.
He however managed to pick up four birdies at the back nine including a 15-footer at the 18th to tie for the top and a chance for a possible victory. Greg on the other hand, said he was going for the title in the closing round. “Today I hit very many bad shots and the round did not go the way I had planned, but I am definitely going for it tomorrow. My worse hole was actually at the eighth hole where I hit palm trees while at the second hole, had a poor take off also from the tee and the results was not very good’’ said Snow
