Kenya’s leading pro-golfer, also the Golf Park Pro David Wakhu played a score of 4-under par to lead his team to victory with a combined score of 86 points to win the ProAm event of the first leg of the 2019/2020 Safari Tour event played at the Nyali Golf and Country Club.

The Kitale-born Wakhu played in the company of amateur golfers Mohammed Essa, John Middleton and Hilda Mugure to win the tournament in the leafy golf course that overlooks the salty Indian Ocean in the Coastal City of Mombasa.

Speaking upon winning the event, Wakhu said that conditions on the course were tough that made playing tough.

The Golf Park Pro said “The wind was blowing hard for most of the day, making it difficult to judge distances with the wind either behind or against the flight of the ball.
