Magical Kenya Open 2022: Preview, betting tips & how to watch

Magical Kenya Open

After a two-week break, the DP World Tour gets back to business at the Magical Kenya Open.

Part of the schedule since 1967, first as part of the Safari Circuit then the Challenge Tour, the event was elevated to the European Tour three years ago. 

Throughout its history it has always been held in Nairobi, alternating between Karen Country Club and Muthaiga Golf Club, where it will be held this year.

Some of the biggest names in golf are among the list of past winners, including Seve Ballesteros, Ian Woosnam, Christy O’Connor Jr and Edoardo Molinari. 

South Africa’s Trevor Immelman took the 2000 title eight years before winning the Masters.
