KISUMU, June 10- Long hitting Mumias golf club resident Pro Dismas Indiza took command of the leader board at the KCB pro-Am tour after firing a superb 6 under 134 for the tournament after Day 2 at Nyanza Golf Club.

Indiza who trailed Windsor’s Rizwan Charania in the opening day by a stroke was in an upbeat mood, carding three birdies, dropped a shot in hole one, and finalized the front nine with five pars for a total of 34.

In the second nine, he came out guns blazing to hit some great shot in the sunny lake side city golf course with three birdies and six pars for another 34.

“My putting is not as good since I’m missing very close putts. I woke up to practice but well I still feel it’s not making any difference. The greens are firm and fast putting is not easy and this has been my weakness but so far it’s okay,” said Indiza.

Thika Pro Simon Ngige and Muthaiga’s Nelson Mudanyi tied for second with a score of 3 under 137.

Ngige seems to be getting his groove back after a lull in the opening two legs.

International Pro Nelson Mudanyi played poorly in the opening day but has now caught up with the leading group to make the cut into the third day.

Only 12 golfers made the cut as the tournament enters its grinding stages.

It was a sad day for home golfer David Odhiambo after he failed to make the cut in a day that saw hot contentions from the golfers who just turned Professional.

David Opati and Eric Ooko players who turned professional not long ago have both made the cut to be in the money bracket come Saturday.
