Sunday, February 23, 2014

UNIVERSITY of the South Pacific student Rohit Chandra will be the player to beat in the General Machinery-sponsored season opening event at the Ba Golf Club today.

Rohit has been in fine form recently and is following the footsteps of his brother Vikrant who is making a name on the New Zealand PGA Tour.

Xavier College teacher Asish Chand will pose a threat to Rohit.

DAV College student Sahil Singh is the favourite in the B grade.

The 17-year-old is one of the rising stars of the club.

He will be up against veteran Pradeep Chandra.

The battle in the C grade will be between Salesh Kumar and Dinesh Maharaj.

Club treasurer Rajeshwar Prasad said there was a big hype for the 18-hole tournament.

Prasad said attractive prizes would be at stake.

"The winner of the tournament will receive the Late Anil Kumar Singh trophy," he said.

"There are a few front runners for the title but upsets are bound to happen."

The tournament will tee off at 10am.
