Mereani's big win

WHAT started as a social activity for Mereani Naisara has become the love of her life.

Mereani took up golfing in late 2012 to mingle with friends and loved ones.

But she eventually fell in love with the sport and started taking it seriously.

On Tuesday, she recorded her biggest win after scooping the FMF Ladies Summer Cup competition. The competition was played for eight weeks at the Fiji Golf Club course in Vatuwaqa.

For Mereani, the win is just one of the many to come in the near future.

"I have been winning at the weekly tournaments but the Summer Cup has to be my biggest win so far," she said.

"I'm married to a golf playing family. My mother-in-law Tulia Naisara and sister-in-law are top golfers and have played for the Fiji team.

Mereani said golf had taught her many lessons.

"I'm a very impatient person but it's through golf that I have learnt to have patience. It's not just a game but teaches a lot about discipline as well."

Agnes Managreve and Hilary Pickering finished second and third, respectively.
