CHARLES Yokwe went on rampage on day two of the Uganda Open golf tournament at Kitante course firing five under par 67 to take a comfortable five-stroke lead.

Yokwe, who started the day with a birdie and followed it up with more on holes 5, 8, 9, 13 and 14, has vowed to stay at the top for good.

Yokwe’s score of 67 was two strokes away from the course record.

“It will be difficult for them to catch up. I know they will be under pressure to recover but I will try to play a cool game,” Yokwe said.
“I wanted to be in the pressure group on Saturday (today) and there I am,” a jovial Yokwe, who was surrounded by friends, added.

“My target was to go just one under, I am very happy with the score.”

Tanzanian ace Mollel Olais who led on day one is tied in second position with defending champion Deo Akope.

Akope was optimistic.
“I am still in contention, I have ever recovered from 10 strokes behind,” Akope said in reference to the 2000 edition when he recovered from a dismal display to take the title.

Yokwe’s father Sadi Onito is tied in fourth position with Kenya sensational Kopan Timbe and Rwandan Robert Byaruhanga, six strokes adrift.

Promising youngster Dennis Anguyo, languishing in seventh position, reached hole 16 when he was four under but faltered on the subsequent holes to slip down the leader board.
