Friday was the last day of hitting at the 2016 International Long Drive Challenge – Team Championship.
Although Team Kenya was eliminated earlier on in the game, 4 out of the 5 Team Kenya members were drawn to play for international teams.
International teams are drawn at the players and coaches meeting before the main ILDC begins – 5 players – 3 mens open, 1 lady and 1 senior are drawn out of a hat and a team is put together – 4 of Team Kenya members were selected for 2 of the International Teams:
International Team 1 – had Ajay Matharu and Joyce Wanjiru
International Team 2 – had James Kamenchu and Jacob Okello
Team KENYA is proud to announce that International Team 1 with Ajay Matharu and Joyce Wanjiru have finished 2nd overall in the 2016 International Long Drive Challenge – they lost to an incredibly strong Team USA.
International Team 2 with James Kamenchu and Jacob Okello finished 3rd overall in the 2016 International Long Drive challenge beating Team Canada 1.
Congratulations to TEAM KENYA for being great ambassadors in Manzanillo, Mexico at the 2016 ILDC.
