This denied him a place on the leaderboard going into Sunday’s final round of the 2019 Magical Kenya Open golf tournament at the par 71 Karen Country Club course.

“My intention was to just hit on the centre of the green and look for a par which was going to be good enough to put me onto the leaderboard. The ball was however seating badly so I had to try and bang it out at least for a five at the worse. I didn’t get it well so it dropped right back to the same place," said Ngige.

Another Kenyan, Justus Madoya shot one over par 72 for a three rounds total of one over par 214. He tied for 57th place at the close of the day.

“My game generally is fine though today I missed a number of short putts which actually denied me an under par score. I will try and see if I will be able to get some birdies in tomorrow’s final round as I really wanted to finish in the top 30 or so," said Madoya.
