Golf Park’s David Wakhu, shot one under par 70 in the second round of the Great Rift leg of the 2021
Safari Tour series, to tie with day one leader Greg Snow on three under par 139, at the par 72 Great Rift Valley Golf Resort course yesterday.

The strong wind however denied the players some low scores as was the case in the opening round where eight players shot under par scores.

Wakhu however said his plan was to go easy to make sure that he makes the second round cut.

“I have been overworking myself in the gym thus giving myself fatigue, but I will try and make more birdies in the remaining two rounds and see if I can improve on my sores’’ said Wakhu.

“My putting today saved the day as the course was not easy while the wind was very challenging’’ he said.

Wakhu started off with a birdie at the first hole, dropped a shot at the fourth and sixth but birdied the 12th and 14th to eventually catch up with the Muthaiga player Snow who bogeyed eight holes against  five birdies for the day’s two over par 73 and a two rounds total of 139.

Apparently, Wakhu’s one under par was the only under score for the day, with a level par 71 by Jacob
Okello, Nelson Mudanyi who both missed cut, and Rwanda’s Aloys Nsabimana being the second best.

Meanwhile senior pro Dismas Indiza shot one over par 72 to move to third place on 141.

He however dropped five shots and it was only his two birdies and an eagle which saved the day for him as a total of 20 players made it to the six over par cut.
