Oklahoma State University student Sam Lee will compete in the US Open golf qualifying tournament later this month.

Lee is a top prospect to represent Fiji at the World Amateur Teams Championship in Karuizawa, Japan, from September 3-14.

National Golf Association of Fiji secretary Amitesh Chandra said this was the first time Lee would be targeting a spot at the US Open. Chandra said it would not be easy.

"This year a record 10,127 players will attempt to qualify for the US Open," he said.

"The 18 holes qualifying tournaments will be held at 111 different courses. After that there will be a 36 holes sectional qualifying tournament.

"Sam has been playing well and is a front-runner for a spot in the Fiji team for the World Amateur Teams Championship. If he qualifies for the US Open then it will be a big boost for the sport in the country."

The US Open will be held at Pinehurst from June 12-15.
