THE National Golf Association of Fiji officials will look out for top talents in the four-day Fiji Open Championship which starts today at the Fiji Golf Course Club in Vatuwaqa.

NGAF president Sitiveni Rabuka said they had an elite squad in place for the Pacific Games to be held in Papua New Guinea next year.

He said the national team selectors would be closely monitoring those in the elite squad to make their final selection for the Pacific Games team.

Rabuka said they would be also eyeing golfers who could represent the nation in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.

"This is the 44th championship that we are hosting.

"This one is special because we are looking forward to the Rio Games in 2016 and a lot of interest has been shown from our own local professionals here in Fiji and abroad as well," Rabuka said.

Meanwhile, the NGAF received a timely financial support from the Fiji National Sports Commission in hosting the Fiji Open.

Rabuka said he received $25,000 from commission chairman Peter Mazey on Tuesday.

"That will go quite a lot way in financing the golf open this year."
