THE favourites for the DHL Global Seniors/Elite Golf Day to be played at the Natadola Bay Championship Course tomorrow have been seeded.

Former Ba Open champion Rajen Singh, former Plantation Island Open winner Ram Khelawan, Plantation Island golf course designer Ananda Madhwan and Rajesh Prasad are the frontrunners for the title.

They will tee off from the first hole at 9.30am.

National Golf Association of Fiji secretary Amitesh Chandra said many attractive prizes would be given out.

"The male golfers will start from the blue tees while the ladies and juniors will play from the red tees," Chandra said.

"The maximum handicap for men is 27 and 36 for the ladies.

"Prizes will be awarded to the top three nett scores in both the senior and elite categories. The main prize will be the best gross in both categories.

"In case of a tie for the prizes, then the places will be decided on countback."

There will be nearest to the pin prizes on all the par three holes while the longest drive prize will be on the 18th hole.
