Cyprian Bundi, a former caddie and Nanyuki based golfer, emerged top in the first leg of the Safaricom Golf Tour after returning 39 Stableford points at the Nanyuki Sports Club.
Marion Githinji took the ladies’ top prize after posting 33 to win by one point from Dr Susan Ngure.
Bundi returned 19 Stableford points in the first nine and 20 on the second nine. This totalled to an impressive 39 points to secure a slot in the Grand Finale of The Safaricom Golf Tour to be held in Vipingo Ridge, Kilifi County, in August.
“I have come a long way, having in mind that I started my golfing career as a caddie and today, I am the winner of the Safaricom Golf Tour. I look forward to representing my club at the grand finale in Vipingo,” said Bundi.
The first leg of the Safaricom Golf Tour culminated in the Junior Golf Tournament, which saw Belinda Wanjiru emerge as the best girl with 76 points, while Justin Ngeera emerged as the best boy with 72 points.
The golf tour in Nanyuki attracted over 50 junior golfers and 52 corporate golfers who took part in the eighteen-hole tournament, which was preceded by a community outreach engagement at Kano Grounds in Nanyuki town.
