What you need to know:

  • Starting with an eagle three at the par five-first hole, Akope, a resident pro at Uganda Golf Club in Kampala, later pushed his driver to the right at the par five-fifth hole, came out well but over shot the green, to drop his only shot of the day
  • Ngige who said his take off from the tee was not so good, hopes to try and go lower in the final round, though his plan like Akope is to try and minimise further damage
  • Closing to a striking position was Golf Park’s David Wakhu who shot three under 68 to tie for third place with senior pro Dismas Indiza on level par 213

Uganda’s Deo Akope shot three under par, his second in two days, to tie with Thika Sports Club’s Simon Ngige on two under par total, going into the final round of the fourth leg of 2021/22 Safari Tour golf series at par 71 Nyali Golf and Country Club course on Tuesday.
