Moore and Muthiya give hope at Zambia Open

Sports Moore and Muthiya give hope at Zambia Open

Madaliso Muthiya and Dayne Moore enhanced their chances of making the cut on Friday after posting favourable scores in round one at the 2015 Mopani/RedPath Zambia Open at Nkana Golf Club in Kitwe.

Moore made a dramatic recovery from three-over to finish at one-under, five shots behind South African Theunis Spangenberg.

Muthiya on the other hand was two shots behind Moore on one-over 73.

However, it was not good news for Patrick Mwendapole who tumbled from one-over on his front nine before finishing at 8-over 80 and in danger of not making the cut for the second year running.

But Aaron Simfukwe Jnr put himself in a good position to make the cut with Moore and Muthiya when he finished at four-over.

Meanwhile, the remainder of local field all failed to muster anything below 6-over with the 2015 Zambia Open qualifiers winner Kelvin Phiri finished at 8-over.

Wednesday’s Pro-Am winner Gibson Saloba failed to spark and finished at plus 11.

  1. Not good enough. We expect better than these scores in the next round. We want a local to win at home ground.
