Snow, who got off to a shaky start at the tournament by carding a round of 74, held his nerve and found groove through the rounds to claim the top spot.
Speaking after the round, Snow said he was delighted with the win adding that the was happy with the recovery work that he put into the second and third rounds which lifted his scores.
“I am happy with the win here as it has been a very tough outing, not just for me, but for everyone who was involved over the last four days. I am particularly pleased with my performance over the last two rounds as they ensured that I increased my chances of winning the event. Today’s round was challenging, but I am glad that I only went over by two shots – which wasn’t a terrible outcome in the end.”
“Focus now shifts to the next Safari Tour event in Uganda, where I am hoping to challenge for the top honours there as well.”
With this win, Snow now has a total of four Safari Tour victories; and having taken top prize money in five occasions.
