OLAF Allen Jr successfully defended the Srixon Cleveland Champion versus Champion golf tournament at the Pearl South Pacific Championship Golf Course in Pacific Harbour yesterday.

The Suva golfer took an early lead on day one with an eight over par 152.

He continued his form to scoop the title for another year.

Allen said it was tough playing against the best in the country.

"The competition was good, the course was lovely and I thank all the players for turning up and making this competition a tough one," he said.

Allen said it was vital to win the first tournament of the new season.

He said his CVC triumph in Deuba yesterday would set the platform for the year.

"It's good to win the first tournament of the year, it's new beginning for the new year and hopefully many more to come."

Allen said he had set goals for this year.

"I want to become a better golfer, be healthier and train more and just become a better person."

He added the course was in top condition compared to the past five or six years.

Abid Hussein finished second.
