NATIONAL rep Anuresh Chandra is brimming with confidence ahead of the Western Open Golf championships at the Lautoka Golf Links course tomorrow.

The Airports Fiji Ltd fireman is among the favourites to take out the Process Valves & Controls sponsored 18 holes tournament hosted by the Lautoka Golf Club (LGC).

Chandra, who has won the Ba Open Championship, seven consecutive times, will be up against home club favourites like — club champion — James Krishna, former LGC Open champion Prem Chand, Suren Pillay and Asish Kumar.

He said he was looking forward to maintaining consistency when he competed this weekend.

"I am in the best of form after claiming the inaugural Srixon/Cleveland Championship at the Nadi Airport Golf Club over 36 holes last weekend," Chandra said.

"And I want to be very consistent in all the national events coming up."

Tournament Co-ordinator Jeffrey John confirmed lucrative prizes will be up for grabs in the Overall division, A, B, C, and Juniors category.

"The recent rain has really softened the greens and fairway and excellent scores will be the order off the day," he said.

"Definitely there will be stiff competition in all the categories."

Entry fee for the event is $20 and will include lunch and refreshments.

Tee-off is from 11.30am to 1pm.
