Former Kakamega golf captain Jack Songwa will join current captain Pape Sembi in tomorrow’s Vivo Energy Golf tournament on par 72 Kakamega golf club.
Songwa, who last Saturday won two club during Eldoret’s Kenya Seed golf championships said he will be in action to reclaim his position in the game after picking an injury.
“Am fully prepared for the tournament now that I have recovered from injuries. I want to try my best and be one of the top golfers on Saturday at my home club and serve as a captain at the same time,” said Songwa.
Playing handicap 17, Songwa will tee off at 10am alongside other golfers from the Vivo Energy company among others.
“I have been training well for the event and this, being the first time we are having a big tournament since this year began. It has been a good year for me and we shall be having many golfers coming from our neighbouring clubs and shining at home will be good for me,” said Songwa.
The businessman based in Kakamega added that the course has been dry due to the dry weather but that will not stop golfers from enjoying great golf along the course.
“This is a dry season and we expect fast running fairways but that is normal in this region. Last weekend in Eldoret, I managed 32 points and drove home two balls. The results came due to the dry weather but with little rain, the recovery is on,” he added.
Club captain Pepe Sembi is expected to lead other home club golfers for the big tournament. Others expected on the course will be former captain Hieronim Ikhokoro, among others.
Invited clubs include Kitale, Eldoret, Nyanza, Kisii Kericho and Ruiru to compete for the coveted title in one of the most crowded fields of golf play.
