NADI golfer Baarroon Hussain played alongside professional Chris Gaunt in the Australian Master of the Amateurs Pro-Am Challenge at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club yesterday.

The Pro-Am will serve as the prelude to the 72 holes Australian Master of the Amateurs Championship which starts today.

Chris is the brother of Daniel Gaunt who plays on the European Tour.

Baarroon's dad Abid said the youngster had acclimatised to the conditions in Australia.

Abid said the Nadi Muslim College student had his final practise session yesterday.

"I have been in contact with Baarroon daily and he is confident of a good outing," he said.

"He shot an even par during a practise round in Sydney before heading to Melbourne.

"The weather should not be a problem. By playing in the Pro-Am he will be able to gauge his level."

Baarroon is Fiji's youngest entrant in the Australian Master of the Amateurs Championship.

He will return to defend the John Cooper Junior Golf Championship at the Fiji Golf Club on January 16 and 17. The tournament will be played over 36 holes.
