After firing an amazing score of 137 (5 under par) over the opening two days of the 2014 Rwanda Golf Open, Kenyan professional golfer, Dismas Ndiza is poised for top spot if current form and favour is anything to go by.

The Kenyan ace is going for the Nyarutarama club course of 67. He holds the Uganda Golf Course record at 64, and boosts of the three other gongs.
Ndiza also holds the course best records at Kitale (66), Kisumu (65) and Muthaiga (65).
