Nyasha Muyambo

Nyasha Muyambo emerged the victor after carding a three under par 69 for a comfortable five stroke margin of victory, finishing ahead of second placed Visitor Mapwanya and third placed Robson Chinhoi.

Zimbabwean golfers swept the board as the Safari Tour’s second leg came to a close at the Limuru Country Club on Wednesday 9 November 2022. 

Nyasha Muyambo emerged the victor after carding a three under par 69 for a comfortable five stroke margin of victory, finishing ahead of second placed Visitor Mapwanya and third placed Robson Chinhoi.

He earned Ksh 300,000 for his efforts and 50 Order of Merit points.


Commenting after the victory, Muyambo said,  “I have really learnt a lot from Chinhoi since the Uganda Open. My game has general been good save for the second round where I dropped a number of shots. I am very I happy to win in such a strong field featuring some of the best players. This is a great step forward in my quest to qualify for Magical Kenya Open for the first time.”

Muyambo had gone into the final round of play at Limuru tied for the lead with Chinhoi but pulled away following an impressive birdie on the par -5 third hole as Chinhoi committed a series of unforced errors that saw him drop four shots and slip away from Muyambo. 

Vetlab’s Mike Kisia was the highest ranked Kenyan golfer, finishing joint third overall Chinhoi after a disastrous final round that saw him bogey thrice in the opening five holes. Not even a series of subsequent eagles would lift him above the leading duo. 

Action in the Safari Tour, which serves as the Magical Kenya Open 2023 qualification process moves to Vipingo Ridge on 26 November.
