Kenya has won the past two editions.

Uganda golfers are seeking to make amends as the third edition of the Victoria Cup tees off today at the Vetlab Sports Club in Nairobi.

Having lost the first two editions, Uganda will be seeking to register their maiden win in the two-nation tournament that is akin to the Ryder Cup between teams from the US and Europe.

Kenya has won the past two editions; the first by a point at Muthaiga Golf Club and the second by two points in Entebbe last year where they edged Uganda by two points.

The three-day match-play championship starts with the foursomes matches before the four-ball-better-ball matches in the afternoon.

The first match pits Adolf Muhumuza and David Kamulindwa against Daniel Nduva and Agil Is Haq while team captain Becca Mwanja and Rodwell Gaita is up against Dennis Saikwa and Mike Kisia.

The other matches have Joseph Cwinyai and Herman Mutebi facing off with John Karichu and Paul Muchangi as Edwin Mudanyi and Mutahi Kibugu entertain Richard Baguma and Ronald Rugumayo.

Former national player Stephen Kasaija is coach of the Ugandan team.

On Saturday other Ugandan golfers will take on their Kenya counterparts in the subsidiary event of the championship.
