Kenya entered a total of nine professional golfers, but unlike last year’s Magical Kenya Open, where one  player progressed to the 4th round, none made the cut to play in the final round today.

According to Absa Bank Kenya Head of Communications Charles Wokabi, there’s a need for urgent measures to improve Kenya’s performance in international championships. 

“We need more public-private partnerships from the grassroots, so as we introduce kids to golf at a tender age, by the time they grow up, they become professionals.

The Magical Kenyan Open is the only DP World Tour series being held in East Africa, with this year’s winner set to pocket Ksh 59.5 million while the 1st runner-up will get Ksh 38.5 million.
