I will be coming to play in the Uganda Open pro Golf Open. I have done some practice but i will still come in early and acclimatize

He is no stranger to Ugandan soil with his most recent participation being in the Mbarara Golf Open earlier this year.

Having won the Rwanda Open in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2014, two Burundi Open gross titles (2007 and 2011), two Rwanda Open (2012 and 2015) and the 2008 Captain and President’s Cup titles in Rwanda, he has the impetus to cause a storm at the Uganda Open.

Other Rwandan pro golfers to confirm are Erneste Ndayisenga and Olivier Munyaneza.

The trio are seeking to have a better performance this year as both their representatives missed the cut on day two of last year’s tournament.

Although the Rwanda squad boasts of seasoned winners and hard players, there will be fierce competition from the Ugandans, who will be looking to retain the trophy on home grounds. It must be remembered that the defending champion of the Pros tournament of the Tusker Malt Uganda Open is the phenomenon Ronald Otile who won it last year at first attempt.

But, Ronald Otile will not be taking part in this year’s Pros tournament, there will be plenty of talent from the Ugandan side in; Deo Akope, Amos Kamya, Uganda Golf Club greens keeper George Olayo, Herman Mutawe and a range of others.

The preparations for the Tusker Malt Uganda Open pros tournament are almost finalized with an expected attendance of over 80 professionals from Kenya, Uganda, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Rwanda.

 This year, Tusker Malt Lager has staked out a prize award of UGX 110 million shillings for the professionals.

Title sponsors, Tusker Malt Lager injected into this year’s tournament, UGX 500 million shillings, whereby UGX 230 million shillings was cash.

Tusker Malt Lager embodies the spirit of the game of golf. Tusker Malt lager is slow brewed with an ingredient base of 100% malt giving it that unmistakably rich, smooth premium taste that is widely recognized and that consumers have grown to love.
