The 2021 Magical Kenya Open Golf Championship has attracted about 156 players as the event enters day three at the Karen Country Club.
The opening round of the European Tour’s Magical Kenya Open kicked off on Thursday without televised coverage due to logistical difficulties.
However, Kenya Open Golf Limited (KOGL) has assured there will be live television coverage of the ongoing 2021 Magical Kenya Open on Sunday.
A golfer with the least strokes in the four gruelling days will emerge champion to command the lions share (Sh20 million) of the Euro 1million prize money in the Open.
Railway Club golfer Samuel Njoroge on Friday stepped up his game to fire three-under par 68 in round two to make the cut at the ongoing 2021 Magical Kenya Open at Karen Golf.
The 26-year old landed on the money bracket with total two rounds of two under par 140.
By making the cut, Njoroge is already assured of Sh100,000 pledged to the Kenyan team by the Kenya Breweries Limited.
