After the Serena leg headlined by MTN, Ndyaguma is now on 233 points going into the final round of the series at the Uganda Golf Club on March 2.

 
Paul Ndyaguma’s consistency over the five legs of the Tusker Malt Lager Golf Series saw him stretch his lead on the standings as the event made its second-last stop at the Lake Victoria Serena Golf Resort and Spa on Saturday.
 
After the Serena leg headlined by MTN, Ndyaguma is now on 233 points going into the final round of the series at the Uganda Golf Club on March 2.
 
“It's a great feeling! It's yet to sink in well that I actually won the ticket. Maybe I don't know how to get excited, but I feel good deep inside,” Ndayaguma stated.
 
“I honestly don't put much attention to the Table Standings, I just think about my game and how I can play better every match day. I went to Palm Valley looking for 35 points, got 37; was again looking for 35 at Serena and shocked myself with 41!”Ndyaguma who plays of handicap 21 said.
 
Collins Bulafu and Geoffrey Orach who are closely following in the individual standings also made it to the final after their team collected 42 points to qualify for the final.
 
Peace Kabasweka also maintained her lead in the ladies category stretching her lead to 193 points after Saturday’s action.
 
It’s now obvious that with only one leg remaining, Ndyaguma and Kabasweka have a foot on the flight to Pattaya and their team mates Moses Mukiibi and Sheilla Kesiime will be praying that they lift them in the finals so as not to miss out on the trip.
 
The top two teams (of two each) and the best male and female golfer in the individual standings will make the trip to Thailand.

In Pattaya, the winners will get chance to play on some of the 19 golf courses in the city over the four-day expedition.
 
From a fishing village in the 1960s, Pattaya has emerged as one of Asia’s best golf destinations. Unlike other Thailand golf resort areas, where one or two famous courses are used as magnets to attract golfers, Pattaya makes an all-out attempt to provide the best golf for players of all abilities.
 
The series is sponsored by Tusker Malt Lager, with MTN, Shell-V-Power, Kenya Ports Authority, PEPSI, Ethiopian Airlines, Serena Hotels, Let’s Go travel and Commercial Bank of Africa as co-sponsors.
