Krish Beiju Shah leads 2024 Kenya Junior Strokeplay championship with a 75 score in round three, securing his position as the new leader.

Shah had a good first nine where he started off with a birdie, then got four straight pars before a bogey, another birdie, and a double bogey. Another four straight pars gave him an impressive 35 in the first nine.

In the second nine, Krish had a score of 40 to move from third on the leader board to the top. Shashwat Harish maintained his second position on the leader board but tied with Krish on an overall score of +15.

He was one stroke better than in round two with a score of 78 on the day. His first nine yielded 38 and his second nine 39.

“Golf is like that, you start badly sometimes. I started with four bogeys and it was tough. But I told myself there are 14 holes to go and I kept it going, tried to play for pars, if the birdie came, it came; a bad start doesn’t always guarantee a bad finish,” explained Harish on his difficult start in round three,” he observed.

Junaid Manji has had a steady climb from the first round and now sits third, only two strokes behind the leaders.

He had an impressive first nine of level pars in all the holes except a bogey in hole 12 for a score of 38. He scored 39 in the second nine for a total of 75 on the day.

“I have been focussing on the little things and I have not been too focussed on my score. I have been busy trying to get some momentum my way. Other than that, I have tried to keep it steady as much as I can,” he explained.

Hence, the final round for will be played on Thursday 11th April at the Muthaiga Golf Club.
