CONSISTENCY was the key for Anuresh Chandra as he maintained his winning form to take out the Western Open Golf Championships at the Lautoka Golf Club course last Saturday.

The Airports Fiji Ltd fireman shot a brilliant 1 under par 49 to win the Process Values and Controls Ltd-sponsored tournament by four shots from Nadi Open Championship Baarroon Hussein.

Chandra said it was his first tournament at the Lautoka Golf Club and he was now targeting the Lautoka Open in August.

"This was my first game in Lautoka this year and to beat home club favourites James Krishna, Asish Kumar, Prem Chand and Suren Pillay puts me in fine stead for the upcoming Lautoka Open Championship," he said.

"I was confident all along to win the event and now looking forward towards the 44th Fiji Open to be played over 72 holes from this Thursday to Sunday at the Fiji Golf Club in Suva."

Ravinesh Kumar convincingly won the overall nett title on 37 nett while veteran Gaffar Ali took out the A-grade on 47.

Baarroon Hussain finished second on 50 and Anthony John settled for third place on 51.

Dr Vimal Murthi claimed C-grade with 48 edging Arvind Chand who had 49 and Shivneel Goundar finished third with 51.

Eight-year-old Saroon Hussain claimed the youngest golfer title while Mohd Salim finished first in the Beginners category with 54 edging FNU Vice-Chancellor Dr. Ganesh Chand on a countback.

Meanwhile the DHL Global forwarding-sponsored monthly medal will be played this Saturday.
