AIRPORTS Fiji Limited fireman Anuresh Chandra fired an excellent two under-par 68 in the first round of the Srixon Cleveland Classic at the Nadi Airport Golf Club yesterday.

Anuresh was in fine nick scoring six under through 16 holes before messing up on the 17th with a double par.

He goes into today's final round with a two stroke lead from Vijay Krishna Singh who carded even par 70.

Veteran Ram Khelawan showed that he could play as well as the national elite squad members scoring one over 71 to be tied with tournament favourite Roneel Prakash.

Fiji's number one amateur golfer Olaf Allen Junior and Abid Hussain scored three over par 73.

Junior golfer Ratu Meli leads the nett division. He is the son of former South Pacific Games gold medallist Seru Matairala.

National Golf Association secretary Amitesh Chandra said an exciting finish is expected with the players being seeded in the final round.

Amitesh said 40 players had entered the two day tournament.

"Anuresh has set the early pace," he said.

"There isn't much separating the golfers at the top of the leader board."

The competition will tee off at 8am today.
