TOMASI Tuivuna still maintains the lead in the Fiji Open Golf Championship at the Fiji Golf Club in Vatuwaqa.

He shot eight under par on day three of the competition yesterday to stay on top with a total of 208.

Australian Matt Ballard remains on second place after hitting seven under par yesterday to still on 209 points.

In amateur category, Olaf Allen Jr also maintains his lead with a score of 208.

Samoan golfer Timotoe Samau climbed into second spot with 220 points.

Fiji Golf Club manager Nigel Goundan said the race was currently between three people for the overall title.

"Since defending champion Ryan Fox is not back to defend the title, a new winner will definitely be crowned," he said.

"So the race at the moment is between Tomasi, Matt and Olaf for the overall title but then again, we never know what happens in golf.

"Tomorrow (today) the lead could change and we could have new winner depending on how the golfers perform.

"We just pray for good weather so all golfers are able to have a good round of golf on the final day of competition."

The Fiji Open Golf Championship ends today.
