RISHI Ram took out the annual Jonati Mavoa Memorial golf tournament at the Fiji Golf Club on New Year's Day.

He won the title on a countback ahead of junior golfer Masi Naupoto. Both golfers carded 40 stableford points. Ram last won the title in 2012 but failed to participate last year to defend his title because of personal commitments.

William Naisara accumulated 38 points to win the A grade ahead of Robert Li who was second with 37; Shalen Prakash was third with 36.

Ram Bajeikel won the B grade on countback from Ram Lochan after both golfers finished with 38 points. John Aidong also has 38 points but was placed third on countback.

Rishi Ram's 40 points were enough to hand him the C grade title as well; Naupoto was second and Tui Kau was third in the grade with 39 points.

Agnes Managreve took out the women's title with a score of 39 ahead of Ming Zang Lee and 14-year-old golfer Vawi Jye who finished second and third respectively with scores of 36 and 35.

Club manager Nigel Goundan said they had a good turnout for the event even despite the hot weather.

"Nearest to the pin was won by Marika Naupoto on hole 2, YJ Oh on hole 5, Robert Li on hole 12 and Moses Fong on hole 16," he said.

"And the Fiji Golf Club Champions for 2013 results - A grade winner was Mohammed Rizwan, runner up was VK Singh; B grade winner was Opetaia Ravai and runner up was Edden Eyeun; C grade winner was Govind Sami and runner up was Viliame Naupoto.

"Consolation winner was Vikash Chand and runner-up was Ramesh Goundan. The best junior player award was won by Marika Naupoto for the boys and Dawi Jee for the girls."
