At 51 years of age, Jacob Okello is no doubt Kenya’s most decorated golfer. His golf resume is quite impressive. He was the number one amateur player in Kenya 1992-1994; has the most appearances at Kenya Open-11; holds the course record at Muthaiga Golf Club- 11 under par 61; two top five finishes at Kenya Open; the only local who has come close to winning Kenya Open- lost in the playoff in 1998. This, undeniably, is an enviable success-rate going by local standards but a pale shadow of what his peers have accomplished over time.
