BA golfer Vikrant Chandra will participate in the Mondiale Omaha Beach Pro-Am Championship in New Zealand this weekend.

Chandra has enjoyed two top 10 finishers on the New Zealand PGA Tour after earning a ticket at the Q-School event in Auckland last month.

Last weekend, Chandra finished in 11th position at the Lawnmaster Classic at the Manawatu Golf Club in Palmerston North. He carded a total of two over par 290 in the 72 holes event.

New Zealand PGA national events manager Jim Clelland said Chandra's performance at the Lawnmaster Classic was his best so far.

Clelland said the performance would go a long way in retaining his tour card and playing privileges next year.

"Vikrant is doing a great public relations job for Fiji while he participates in our events," he said.

"This weekend Vikrant will play in the Mondiale Omaha Beach Pro-Am before lining up in the final stage qualifier for the New Zealand Open at The Hills and Millbrook courses near Queenstown in the South Island."

The Mondiale Omaha Beach Pro-Am Championship is offering a total prize purse of more than $38,000.

The New Zealand Open will be held from February 27 to March 2.
