Home pro Mohit Mediratta rolled in a total of seven birdies and dropped three shots for the day’s five under par 67, to lead the surviving group of 22 into the third and fourth rounds in the first legof the 2021/2022 season of the Safari Tour golf series at the par 72 Sigona Golf Club course, yesterday.

Mediratta, who said he stopped teaching three weeks ago to concentrate on his preparation for the Safari Tour fourth season, picked up three birdies at the front nine where he only dropped one shot at the par three-fifth hole.

He then embarked on the back nine with two quick birdies at the 10th and 11th, made two back-to-back bogeys at the 13th and 14th, but recovered the two shots at the 15th and 17th, for a two rounds total of seven under par137.

“The course is playing very well and though I dropped couple of shots, my game basically is good as I am on the course literally every day. I have prepared well for the season. My aim is to win a number of events so that I can easily qualify for the Magical Kenya Open’’ said Mediratta.

He goes into the third round with a four shots lead from Kenya Railway Golf Club’s Alfred Nandwa.
