SUVA golfer Olaf Allen Jr maintained his top position after the second national trials at the Nadi Airport Golf Club last weekend.

Allen Jr took out maximum points in the 36 holes competition.

He carded 69 in the first round and 73 in the second round for a total of 142.

Allen Jr was penalised two strokes for not reporting on time however this did not deter him from finishing five shots ahead of second placed Abid Hussain and Roneel Prakash on 149.

Airports Fiji Limited fireman Anuresh Chand and Zoheer Ahmed were tied at 150.

National Golf Association of Fiji secretary Amitesh Chandra said Allen Jr had set the early pace in his bid to secure a spot in the Fiji team for the World Amateur Teams Championship in Japan in September.

Amitesh said only five players were able to achieve the benchmark score of 150.

"The way Olaf is playing, he is a strong contender to make the Fiji team," he said.

"Only five players were awarded ranking points after the trials. The other 12 members of the training squad failed to achieve the benchmark scores and were not awarded points.

"Olaf is playing well and has maintained his form. However he needs to report on time to avoid the penalty.

"The other players must start focusing if they are to stand a chance to make the national team because there are only three positions in the team. Sam Lee is doing well in the United States."

The Srixon Cleveland Fiji Amateur Championship stroke play at Pacific Harbour next month will serve as the third trials.

Rankings: 1st Olaf Allen Junior (50 points), 2nd Abid Hussian (38.5 points), 3rd Roneel Prakash (20.5 points), 4th Vijay Krishna Singh (19 points), 5th Zoheer Ahmad, Anuresh Chandra (14 points).
