The Kenya Great Rift Valley Lodge and Golf Resort club member had a phenomenal four rounds action with 6-under 65 on day one, 3-under 68 on the second round, 5-under 66 during round three and a dismissal 1-over 72 during the final day.

Madoya asserts that the first round scores motivated him to perform well on a course that he loves to the brim.

The first round motivated me to play well. Playing under par has always motivated me. The greens on the final day were too tough. Entebbe is a beautiful course and I love the place. I won a tournament a week ago last week at home and it motivated me coming to the Tusker Malt Uganda Golf Pro Open 2021. I did not mind about the opponents in the pressure group because I only play my golf.
