KIAMBU, Kenya, Jan 28 – Muthaiga Golf club’s Greg Snow is on track to win a fourth Safari Tour title after carding an impressive score of 4-under par, 68 in round three at the Sigona Golf club going into the final round of play.

Snow, who recorded a total score of 6-under par, 210, was even more impressive considering the fact that he hit a triple bogey at the par-5, fourth.

Up until this point, the Snow had hit two birdies at the first and third and a bogey at the second, a further two birdies and a bogey in the next five holes saw him turn with a 1-over par 37 score.

Speaking after his round, Snow mentioned how much he enjoyed his round while looking forward to an even better performance in the final round.

“I played well today, I am pleased with my round and the fact that I have started getting consistent, which is what I was struggling with in the last couple of legs. I look forward to another great showing tomorrow and hopefully win the title.”
