TOMASI Tuivuna shot a magnificent seven under par 65 yesterday to lead the Fiji Open Golf Championship at the Fiji Golf Club course in Vatuwaqa.

The top local professional has a healthy lead on the leader board.

Tuivuna has set a good platform after day one of competition as he aims to win the 44th edition of the annual event.

Krishna Singh and Anasa Seruvatu are tied on second with three under par 69.

Australia-based Rika Batibasaga is tied on third after hitting two under par 70.

In the amateur grade, Olaf Allen Jr made an excellent start after carding five under par 65 yesterday.

The top Fiji amateur golfer also has a good lead over his other competitors in the competition which ends this Sunday.

Anuresh Chandra is placed second on two under par 70 while V K Singh scored an even par to finish third.

Allen Jr said the race had just started and there were no clear favourites.

He hopes to maintain his form and retain the lead

"It was a great day and the condition is excellent. Hope for a better performance tomorrow (today)," Allen Jr said.

A total of 144 golfers are taking part in this year's Fiji Open.

The winner from this event will get an entry to the Fiji International to be played in August in Natadola.
