Kenya: Nadir Jasser Wins Total Golf Tournament At Muthaiga Gc

Leading a field of 160 golfers Nadir Jasser carded 48 Stableford points to win the Total tournament at Muthaiga. Playing off 27 he finished five points ahead of David Ombisi with 11 handicap George Ndegwa taking third place with 40 points.

Interviewed after receiving his prize from Alexis Vovk, the Managing Director of Total Kenya Limited, Jasser said, "I started playing golf here at my home club Muthaiga 18 months ago and this is my first big victory.

My round featured a birdie on the second hole and six pars which pleased me greatly." Maurice K'Anjejo, the Muthaiga Golf Club Captain, announced that Jasser's handicap had been cut from 27 to 21.

This was good news for the Total tournament winner who remarked, "I had set a target to reduce my handicap to 18 by the end of 2013. Now I hope to reach this objective much sooner."

Twelve handicap Rose Koome won the ladies award with 36 points and the staff winner was Ndiga Githae who earned 29 points playing off 12.

Recent rain has dampened the grass at Muthaiga and many golfers rated the conditions as "tough" because there was no roll on the ball. The greens received favourable comments and several golfers had the satisfaction of sinking long putts.
