Uganda's Phillip Kasozi (165.5pts) is currently second to Zimbabwe’s Robinson Chinhoi who is on 169 points among the non-Kenyan golfers who are fighting for the two slots.

With Phillip Kasozi the only one contesting for one of the two slots to qualify to play in the Magical Kenya Open, other Ugandans are out to ensure the prize money remains at home as the Kitante Open teed off today at the Uganda Golf Club.

Kasozi is among 18 Ugandan professionals, 29 Kenyans, 1 Nigerian, 2 Zimbabweans and one Nigerian fighting it out in the ninth leg of the Safari Tour which builds up to the Magical Kenya Open due next month.

Kasozi (165.5pts) is currently second to Zimbabwe's Robinson Chinhoi who is on 169 points among the non-Kenyan golfers who are fighting for the two slots.

The top two non-Kenyans from the tour will get entry into the Magical Kenya Open while there are eight slots for the Kenyan nationals. Only members of the Safari Tour earn points.

With three consecutive wins at Thika Greens, Muthaiga and at Sigona, Kenya's Greg Snow who is also in action now leads the tour standings on 350 points, 13 ahead of Dismas Indiza who has also won three of the nine competitions he has competed in and only missing the cut once.
