The organisers of the Augsburg Classic will take a cut of the top 40 players that is 1 over and the ties however the amateur will not be considered thus making Kitata and other amateurs miss out.
“It’s important for me to play here and gain the experience it will help me in the long run,” Kitaka said. “I believe this will make me a better golfer and I believe it will help me when I return back to Uganda.”
