SIX Kenyan professional golfers will battle for the $1000 (sh1.8m) top prize with their Ugandan counterparts in the inaugural Uganda Professional Golfers Association (UPGA) tournament that tees off this morning at Kitante.

Kenyans Kopan Timbe, Peter Mwangi, James Ngigi, Alex McGuiness, Ali Kimani and Dismas Ndiza yesterday had a practice session at the par 72 Kitante course ahead of the 54-hole stroke-play tournament that tees off at 8.00am. The professionals will play 36 holes today and will close the competition with 18 holes tomorrow.

“I have played with the Ugandans before and I know they are very good. It is going to be a tough contest. They are at home so you really can’t tell who will win it.

Whoever will win it is likely to have good scores because there’s great competition,” Timbe commented.

The Kenyans will come up against UPGA captain Deo Akope, Charles Yokwe, Sadi Atibu, Godfrey Mande, Dennis Anguyo and Stephen Kasaija.

UPGA chairman Jim Muhwezi presided over the launch of the association at Uganda Golf Club (UGC) yesterday.
