The pair started the front nine with two impressive pars on the first two holes and a birdie on the third hole. They followed it up with two more pars, dropped a shot on the sixth and finished the first nine with three consecutive pars to card 25 points on the front nine.

On the back nine, the pair continued with their good run, getting a par on the 10th before dropping a shot each on the 11th and 12th and scratching the 14th hole. They recovered with two pars on the 15th and 16th, dropped a shot on the 17th and finished the last two holes with two pars to get 18 points.

"We were a great team, we complimented each other’s play, we had trouble in the second nine after we blanked on one hole, but the first nine was very good for us," said an elated Owiti after picking the prize.

Ken Mambo and Joyce Karanja came in second after posting 40 points. The pair started the first nine by dropping a shot on the first hole, carded two pars on the second and third. They dropped a single shot each on the fourth and fifth and recovered with a par on the sixth.
