South African Justin Harding is the 2021 European Tour Magical Kenya Open champion.

Justine produced sparkling round of five-under-par 66 for a two-shot victory over American Kurt Kitayama on Sunday, a performance that will see him walk home with a cheque worth $200,000.

This was the second victory for Justin at the Karen Country Golf Club in Nairobi on Sunday.

Justin stepped on the greens of Karen, the best golf course in the country, with a two-shot lead, only to round off the championship with a bogey-free evening.

Kitayama made two eagles and two birdies as he threatened to catch the run away leader who was at the top of the leaderboard the previous night, but a bogey on the 11th meant he fell short.

“I’m glad I shot one better than a couple of years ago, I was bummed about that, but I’m just happy with the way I managed my game,” Justin said after the sweet victory.

This was his sixth win in three years at the tour. His maiden tour victory though was two years ago at the Qatar Masters.

The first two days of the event was not televised on TV after broadcasting equipment failed to arrive in the country time.

But with the conclusion of the Kenya Open, action now shifts to Savannah Classic that will tee off on 23rd until 26th.

Scotland’s Connor Syme finished with a 64 to secure third place ahead of Sebastian Garcia Rodriguez from Spain.
