Kenya: Odhiambo Clings to the Summit of Jamii Telecom PGK Masters

Kisumu's David Odhiambo clung to the summit of Jamii Telecom PGK Masters for the second day running as play entered the third and penultimate stage at the par 72 Muthaiga Golf Club yesterday.

Odhiambo went to bed with a two-shot lead from Thika Sports Club resident pro Simon Ngige, who was the biggest mover in round three play with a scintillating 8 under par 64.

Ngige had a bad start in the first two rounds which he shot 2 over but picked himself up yesterday to move up from eighth to the second position on Day 3 leader board.

What this means is that Odhiambo--who led by three shots on Day 2, must maintain his tempo if he hopes to clinch the Jamii tournament, now in its third edition.

Odhiambo played 1 under yesterday to lead the pack with a total of 6 under par 210 for the day.

Brian Njoroge is lying third with a total of 3 under par 213m jointly third with Day One leader Dismas Indiza, who played a round of 2 under yesterday. The four-round tournament ends today paving way for the Barclays Kenya Open next week.
