UPCOMING golfer Mohammed Rizwan has set high goals for next year after ending the season on a high.

The 27-year-old administrative manager won the Fiji Golf Club Championship last month and hopes the win is a sign of better things to come in the future.

"It was my first club championship win after losing in the semi-finals last year to Robert Williams," Rizwan said.

"I broke Olaf Allen Jr's five year record of being the 'A' grade club champion."

Rizwan defeated Nigel Goundar while Allen Jr lost to VK Singh in the semi-finals.

He faced a tough battle in the showdown but eventually won three up after the veteran threw in the towel on the 34th hole.

"Well, playing against VK Singh in the finals I knew it would not be easy.

"I had nothing to lose and I told myself that this is the opportunity I was waiting for so I have it and I have to prove that I can do it."

Rizwan who is part of the national squad hopes to represent the country in the future.

"I have been playing golf for about six years and it would be a dream come true for me if I do make the national team."
