Allen Jr out to extend lead

SUVA golfer Olaf Allen Junior will be out to extend his ranking points lead when he participates in the fourth national trials which starts at the Natadola Bay Championship Course tomorrow.

Allen Jr opened up a big gap after winning the Srixon Cleveland Fiji Amateur Stroke Play Championship last week.

He has 75 points and is ahead of Abid Hussain with 40.5 points, Roneel Prakash with 22.5 points and Anuresh Chandra with 16 points.

Ranking points are given to the elite squad members who are vying for a spot in the Fiji team for the 2014 World Amateur Team Championships in Japan.

US-based Sam Lee is guaranteed a spot in the team holding a superior world amateur ranking.

National Golf Association of Fiji secretary Amitesh Chandra said players such as Abid, Roneel and Anuresh would have to pull up their socks if they wanted to get into the national side.

Amitesh said Allen Jr was the lone player to achieve the bench mark score set last week.

"There will be two more trials after this weekend," he said.

"So the onus is on the players to perform."

The World Amateur Team Championships sanctioned by the International Golf Federation will be hosted in Karuizawa from September 3-14.
