Juniors battle for golf title

ORGANISERS of the John Cooper Junior Golf Championship are praying for good weather to prevail today.

The competition starts at 9am at the Fiji Golf Club in Vatuwaqa and rain in the Capital City yesterday put the event under black clouds.

Club spokesperson Nigel Goundar said they wanted the junior golfers to compete on a proper course to ensure they have a good competition.

"The juniors will be the first ones to use the course after maintenance," he said.

"The course was closed for coring during the festive season and if it were to rain, it would spoil the greens for these kids."

Junior golfers from all over the country will participate in the two-day event.

"Majority of the golfers are from Suva, some are from the West and after a very long time, we have someone from the North.

"Jitendra Sami will represent the Northern Division in the tournament."

Meanwhile, Baarroon Hussian will defend the title and Marika Naupoto will provide him with stiff competition.
