LAUTOKA Central Primary School teacher Roneel Prakash will go in as the favourite for the inaugural Srixon Cleveland Classic at the Nadi Airport Golf Club greens this weekend.

Prakash, who is well known for his big hits, has recorded good results at the Newtown course lately.

He will face stiff competition from the likes of Olaf Allen Jr, Abid Hussain and Anuresh Chandra.

National Golf Association secretary Amitesh Chandra said all the national elite squad members would participate in the two-day event.

Amitesh said 36 holes would be played in total.

"It will be 18 rounds of golf on Saturday and Sunday," he said.

"Roneel has been practising daily in the school holidays so he will be in form. Olaf Jr has been playing consistently.

"The elite squad players have participated in four trials this year. They are gunning for a spot in the national team to play at the World Amateur Teams Championship in Japan. There are two more trials remaining."

Allen Jr leads the rankings list with 75 points and is followed by Hussian with 42.5 points, Anuresh Chandra with 41 points and Prakash with 24.5 points.
