Back to Kenya

I continue to be impressed by the European Tour during this pandemic. Maintaining any kind of worldwide schedule is an accomplishment to be recognized, and it's with events like the Magical Kenya Open that they have managed to do it.

Defending champion Guido Migliozzi

This event was cancelled last year for obvious reasons but this year the Karen Country Club in Nairobi is doing double duty, hosting the Magical Kenya Open and next week’s Kenya Savannah Classic in back-to-back weeks. It's easy to forget that this week's event isn't really new -- it's only been on the ET's schedule for a couple of years but the tournament itself has been around for over 50 years, with past winners like Ian Woosnam and Seve -- so they have some experience with staging an event in difficult circumstances.

And as is the case for several tournaments on several tours this year, the 2019 champion Guido Migliozzi is defending.

Obviously I'm most interested in the Americans in the field -- Johannes Veerman, Kurt Kitiyama, John Catlin and Julian Suri -- but this is a pretty strong field filled with names I suspect even most of you casual ET fans would recognize:

  • Gregory Havret
  • Haotong Li
  • SSP Chawrasia
  • Alexander Levy
  • Oliver Fisher
  • Joost Luiten
  • George Coetzee
  • Shubhankar Sharma
  • Victor Dubuisson
  • Jamie Donaldson
  • Jazz Janewattananond

GC will be covering the event starting at 6am ET on Thursday morning. And again, I salute the ET for successfully maintaining a worldwide schedule -- and keeping everyone safe -- under the current conditions. It's a truly amazing accomplishment and they should be very proud of it.
