Golfer keeps improving

NADI Airport Golf Club member Baarroon Hussain recorded a big improvement in round three of the Australian Master of Amateurs Championship at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club.

After posting 17 over par 89 in the first round and 16 over par 88 in the second round, Baarroon carded seven over par 79 for a total of 256 after 54 holes.

In round three, the Nadi Muslim College student scored three birdies, seven pars, six bogeys and two double bogeys.

This moved the 16-year-old up one position on the leader board to 52nd.

Baarroon's father Abid said his son struggled on the first two days because of the weather. Abid said he advised the youngster to play his natural game and not force himself.

"On the first two days Baarroon was feeling a bit cold and wore the jacket," he said.

"This is something Baarroon isn't used to. But then his game really improved in round three when he felt a bit acclimatised. This is a learning curve for him."

Abid, a golfer himself, will be playing in the Srixon Cleveland Champion of Champions tournament which starts at the Pacific Harbour Golf Club today
