Home golfer Stan Kinsch was at his best producing a sterling 44 stableford points  to win the club nite 2018 trophy at the par 72 Leisure Lodge Golf course, in Kwale, at the weekend.

Playing off handicap 11, the medical doctor and veteran golfer, who was warming up ahead of next weekend’s annual Diani Beach Masters tournament, sank three rare birdies at the par three-fifth, par five-13th and par five-18th holes.

Kinsch added an additional nine level pars against a mixed bogey shots on the rest of both nines to emerge the overall winner at the challenging course.

“This is really amazing because it’s not easy to get birdies here but I have made it today. I will be flying to France to watch the Ryder Cup tournament and hopefully return before the Diani Masters tourney,” said Kinsch.

Club mates handicap 21 Anne Jongema, on 35 points, finished second, while handicap 28 Lennart Rydberg, on 34 points, was third.

Meanwhile at the par 72 Thika Sports Club, handicap 22 Margaret Waweru posted 42 points (20-22) to emerge the overall winner of the Ketepa tournament played on Saturday.
