PROFESSIONAL golfers Deo Akope and Denis Anguyo will lead the hunt for a share of sh5m prize money at the second event of the three-in-one Captain’s Prize tournament at Kitante today. 

The two are fresh from competing at the Kenya Open. 

Uganda Open winner Vincent Byamukama, Dickson Lagoro, Gerald Ayella and Herman Mutaawe will also be in contention for the top prize. 

The competition is held to mark the end of Uganda Golf Club’s lady captain Aggie Konde’s term in office. 

The first tournament that had caddies was won by legendary golfer Juma Jaffer’s son Farouk Isah. He carded 68 nett on Monday. 

Hundreds of golfers are expected to compete for various prizes in the main event tomorrow.
