Greg Snow shot a brilliant round on day three of the Muthaiga leg of the Safari Tour golf series to return a 7-under par 64 score; taking his total for the tournament to 12-under par 201.

Snow, who after the
round inched closer to winning his third Safari Tour title, is now a distant 11
shots ahead of Windsor’s David Opati who is in second.

Snow started the
round with consecutive birdies at the Par-4 first and the Par-3 second before
hitting another birdie at the Par-3 fifth.

He dropped a shot at
the Par-4 eighth before making amends with a birdie at the Par-4 ninth for a
first nine total of 33.

On the back nine, he
played bogey-free, starting off with a birdie at the Par-5 10th
which was followed by consecutive birdies at the Par-4 12th and the
Par-3 13th.

He holed his last
birdie of the day at the Par-4 17th for a back nine total of 31;
further cementing his excellent form at the tournament where he has played
under par throughout the leg.

David Opati, who
yesterday shot an impressive 5-under par round, had a difficult day that saw
him fail to record a single birdie on the first nine, and instead, saw him drop
three shots at the Par-4 first, the Par-3 fifth and the Par-4 eighth for a
first nine total 38.

On the back nine, he
recorded a lone bogey at the Par-4 14th, but birdies at the Par-5 10th
and the Par-4 15th were enough for a back nine total of 34; which
took his total for the day to 1-over 72 for a tournament total of at 1-under
par 212.

Meanwhile, Thika
Sports Club’s Simon Ngige maintained his decent form on day three of the Safari
Tour to post a 1-over par 72 score; taking his total for the tournament to
2-over par 215 and cementing third spot on the leaderboard with one round left
to play.

He played a
blemish-free first nine, holding par on the first eight holes before hitting
his first birdie of the day at the Par-4 ninth for a first nine total of 35.

On the back nine he
started off with a birdie at the 10th, before bogeying the 12th
and the 14th. He however hit a birdie at the Par-3 16th
to take his back nine total to 37.

Windsor’s Rizwan
Chandaria maintained his decent streak to record a 1-over par 72 score for a total
of 3-over par 216 to see him claim fourth spot going into the final round of
the Muthaiga leg.

Meanwhile,
long-hitting Dismas Indiza and David Odhiambo are tied for fifth at 4-over Par
217. Akshay Chandaria, one of the four amateurs who made the cut yesterday, is
currently tied in eight alongside John Kagiri and is the best-placed amateur
after three rounds.

Safari Tour Golf series where the overall winner will walk away with KES
