THE elite golfers will get a chance to gain ranking points when they participate in the Srixon Cleveland Fiji Amateur Championship stroke play at the Pacific Harbour Golf Club this weekend.

The tournament will be played over 54 holes making it a world ranking event.

Suva golfer and national squad member Olaf Allen Junior will defend the title.

Allen Jr has been in good form lately.

He won the six-week long Summer Cup competition at the Fiji Golf Club last week.

The Grid Security Services director said he would face stiff competition from the other national squad members.

Allen Jr said he had been practising regularly.

"My biggest threats will come from the Western golfers, especially those from Nadi," he said.

"The aim is to win and maintain my top status in the country. The bigger picture is the World Championship in Japan in September."

Allen Jr leads the national rankings with 50 points. Nadi's Abid Hussain is at second spot with 38.5 points.

Roneel Prakash is third with 20.5 points while Vijay Krishna Singh is fourth with 19 points.

Zoheer Ahmed and Anuresh Chandra are tied at fifth position with 14 points each.

The 2014 World Amateur Team Championships will be held in Karuizawa from September 3 to September 14.
