Dave Coupland marked his debut on the European Challenge Tour by claiming joint 29th spot at the Barclays Kenya Open.

The 27-year-old Boston golfer carded rounds of 72, 72, 72 and 70 to finish two under par at Nairobi’s Karen Country Club.

“Been a good week. Thank you for all the support,” Coupland wrote on Twitter.

Coupland was one of eight golfers to finish two under, each taking home a cheque for 1,540 Euros.

South African Jake Roos won the event on -10, scooping 32,000 Euros.
