Watch: Ugandans celebrate first DPWT cut made by a countryman

Muthaiga Golf Club members had reason to celebrate Friday. In fact, a country had reason to be proud and golf, itself, received a warm reminder of what the game can mean, beyond money.

Ronald Rugumayo, 31, became the first Ugandan to make a cut on the DP World Tour when he sank a 10-foot putt on his final hole of Round 2 at the Magical Kenya Open — his ball drifting on the right edge of the cup and dropping in.

Rugumayo shot 72-70 to finish 36 holes at even par, making the cut on the number, seven off the midway lead.
