The Kenya Savannah Classic supported by Absa makes its debut on the European Tour schedule this week. It will be the second consecutive event to be held at Karen Country Club after last week’s Magical Kenya Open presented by Johnnie Walker, which was won by South Africa’s Justin Harding. As Harding hopes to go back-to-back, several of last week's players will be hopeful they can build on their own impressive form. Kurt Kitayama's second place finish was his second top 10 in a row, while defending champion Guido Migliozzi finished 12th following his own runner-up at the Qatar Masters the previous week. Who will emerge victorious as Harding looks to become the first player to win back-to-back events on the European Tour since Justin Rose in the 2017 WGC-HSBC Champions and 2017 Turkish Airlines Open?

  • Quick tempo, but seems to be a beautiful striker of the ball. Is he that long or are his drives just an effect of altitude? I don’t know Kenya but he hit one 360 on a par 5, and also drove a couple of 330 yard par 4s. Seems surprisingly long. Euro tour is fascinating to watch with the locations they play. Bit different to the usual drive for show hack wedge for dough stuff on the American competitor tour.

    • He is actually a "short" hitter. Around 165mph ball speed typically. I've played with Harding once and his short game is fantastic, particularly his putting. Not the greatest ballstriker - he plays a consistent low fade...good wind player

  • Why is it this tournament is being played so early in the week?

    • @David May be, may be not.. there is a massive time difference between Nairobi and Austin. European tour coverage normally ends a good number of hours before that of the PGA tour begins.

    • @David you know, that's very possible. I hadn't thought of that.

    • Could be to let the world focus on WGC in Austin on Sunday?

    • Back to back tournaments in the same country, on the same course with the same players.. I guess there was no reason to wait! Got to spend the shortest time possible in this 'bubble' thing.

  • I don't know what it is but his swing just seems so strong. Combine that with his putting this guy is dangerous.

    • Nice and compact yet smooth swing. He's actually been in contention in a few majors already, just needs to work on consistency.

    • He is very much like Webb Simpson.
