Coast-based golfer Daniel Nduva fears that inexperience might cost Kenyan golfers ahead of the Magical Kenya Open set to tee off on Thursday.

Nyali Golf & Country Club-based golfer Daniel Nduva lamented about inexperience being one of the major undoings for Kenyan golfers looking to shine on home soil ahead of the 2024 Magical Kenya Open slated from Thursday to Sunday (February 22 to 25) at the Muthaiga Golf Club.

The Coast-based golfer explained that their international competitors are used to playing hence they have more experience

He noted that they have only played in five events, unlike their competitors who have probably played in more than 30 events since concluding last year’s edition of the event.

“For us, it’s not easy because you the play-in experience first for you to be able to play well. These guys get the opportunity to play almost every week and from last year, they probably played 30 to 40 events.

“We have only gotten to play five, last year one, and this year we have only played four of them. You can already see that we already have a huge disadvantage but that will not stop us from doing our best in this event. It is just all about getting out there and doing your thing,” Nduva said.

Going forward, Nduva urged the government and corporates to help them organise events as they seek to perfect their skills.

He added that practice without competition is a waste of time because one can never know where one stands in terms of perfecting their skill.

“We just have to wait for the events because you can practice every day but you are not able to test your skills out there against your competitors.

“We just need the government and corporates to come through for us and organise events. With this, we can be able to compare and see the progress. We just need more events,” he said.
