Great Rift Valley's Madoya, who has not won any title this season, said he wants to use Vipingo as the launching pad.
“I want to try my best in Vipingo to come home with good results. I know it will be challenging but all I want is good results,” he noted.
The reigning Uganda Open Safari Tour champion said he is keen to represent the country at the Magical Open.
“Magical Kenya is here to stay and good professionals will always want to play at the prestigious tournament. Making the cut for the event is no mean task though,” he added.
Karanja also committed to competing for the top position in Vipingo in search of the Magical Kenya Open slot.
Karanja, who was playing alongside Madoya and Boniface Simwa, said his focus will be on how to earn good points toward next year's tourney.
“I will be heading to Vipingo with the sole purpose of earning good points,” he said.
Before heading to Vipingo, he said he will compete at the Muthaiga Chairman’s Cup.
“We want to sharpen our skills at the Muthaiga tournament on our way to Vipingo. Muthaiga will provide a good build-up and practice rounds ahead of the Kilifi show,” he said.
