Indiza charges into the lead of the Safari Tour

Kenya’s veteran golf professional, Dismas Indiza charged into the lead of the Safari Tour after an impressive 5-under par score in Round-3.

Indiza stated his intention early, posting a birdie on the open par-5 1st and an eagle on the par-4 7th. His only blemish on the opening nine was a bogey on the tough dogleg left par-4 4th. On the back nine, Indiza posted early birdies on the 10th, 11th and 15th holes, made a sand save on the 16th but dropped an unnecessary shot on the easy par-5 17th after hitting his drive right off the tee. Indiza finished with an easy par on uphill par-3 18th.

With this performance, Indiza equalled the Nyali Golf and Country Club course record of 5-under. He is now 1-under par for the tournament and 4-strokes ahead of Eric Ooko.

Speaking after his round, Indiza said he was happy with his results. “It is easy to count the ones that didn’t go in, but overall I am happy with my round. I was swinging well, and the weather conditions were favourable for low scoring,” he said. “If the conditions remain the same tomorrow, I will make another attempt at that course record.”

Indiza is the only player under par after three rounds and is on course to pick up the bonus for returning a 4-round under par score.

Royal’s Eric Ooko played steady in Round-3, playing level through the first nine with a birdie on the first and bogey on the 6th hole; on the back nine, he made 8-pars and a lone bogey on the par-4 12th. Ooko now trails Indiza by 4-strokes going into the final round.

Windsor’s Riz Charania remained composed through Round-3 posting birdies on the 2nd, 3rd and 5th holes; however, he lost his swing and made back to back bogeys on the closing four holes of the front nine. On the back nine, Riz made one birdie on the par-5 11th but dropped two shots on the 13th and 16th holes to finish 2-over for the round and 6-over for the tournament on a total of 219.
