Chand eyes Fiji meet

JAPAN-based professional golfer Dinesh Chand has expressed his desire to play at the inaugural Fiji International at the Natadola Bay Championship course in August.

Chand is participating in the OneAsia's Q-School at the Sutera Harbour Golf and Country Club in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia which started yesterday.

A top finish will guarantee the 42-year-old a spot in Fiji's most lucrative sporting event.

Chand boasts three wins on the Japan Professional Tour.

"I'm here to do a job and it would be great for me to do well for several reasons," Chand said in a press statement.

"First of all, there are really good events across Asia and you also have the co-sanctioned tournaments that give you the chance to rise on OneAsia and in Japan.

"But then there is the Fiji International later this year, which will really be something."

Chand earned his Japan Tour card in 1998 and went on to win the Descente Classic.

He won the Munsingwear Open KSB Cup in 2001 and the Mandom Lucido Yomiuri Open in 2004.

Chand lost his card in 2009 after a drop in his performance but regained it in 2010 after excelling on the Japan Challenge Tour.
