Chand leads event

Maciu Malo
Saturday, March 29, 2014

FORMER Lautoka open champion Prem Chand leads the Foodhall Supermarket-sponsored Summer Cup after three rounds of competition.

And with the round four to be staged this afternoon at Lautoka Golf Links, Chand looks set to extend his lead as he sets his eyes on wining the overall title next weekend.

But Chand will face tough competition from round three winner Anthony John and veteran golfer Gaffar Ali who are level on second spot with 36.

Ali said all golfers were looking forward to deny Chand the win.

"The competition is getting tougher each week and we anticipate another tough battle this weekend," he said.

"Chand will fight hard to retain his number one spot as all golfers will also try to deny him the win.

"The Summer Cup has brought the best from the golfers as this is the first time to host a tournament where the overall winner will be decided after round five."

He said other top contenders for the top award were Jeffrey John, Abdul Jalal and Charlie Bhaskaran.

"This weekend's competition will be crucial for these frontrunners because any wrong move will eliminate them from winning the overall title."

Meanwhile, new golfers are encouraged to participate at the tournament.

"We want to promote golf in Lautoka and we welcome any new golfer wanting to take up the sport," said Ali.
