The second category which had players in upper and lower primary, and who also participated in the chip and put, saw Hakeem Mutungi top the list, followed by Ethan Sobayeni in second place, while Ezekiel Kamau was placed third.

The main division, whose players played in five holes, saw Hakeem Muturi post 31 shots to emerge the winner, winning ahead of Ethan Wachira on 34, while Ezekiel Kamau was third on 37 shots.

"They are very determined and most of them have shown great talent, but i will work with them to make sure by next year, they participate in the national events," said coach Paul Muchangi.
