Jean Baptiste Hakizimana and Emmanuel Ruterana will continue their training this morning as they prepare for the final KCB East African Golf tour-Mombasa leg which tees off tomorrow at the Par-72 Nyali golf course.

The pair, who are being sponsored by Serena Hotel arrived in Mombasa on Sunday and have been impressed with the Nyali course.

“The weather is very hot but we are used to that, because we have been training under almost similar conditions back at home [Nyarutarama course].

The course is in good shape and the greens are softer than last year,” Ruterana told Times Sport by phone yesterday.

Over 50 professional golfers from Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi are expected to compete in the Rwf8m tournament bankrolled by Kenya Commercial Bank.
