Hope for weather change

ORGANISERS of the women's golf open are praying for good weather to prevail this week to ensure they have a successful tournament.

The tournament starts on Wednesday at the Fiji Golf Club and will conclude on Saturday.

Rain marred the Fiji Open men's tournament that concluded yesterday.

Women's Golf Fiji president Susie Yee is hoping it would be different for their competition.

She said a total of 65 participants had been confirmed for the event, which was used as a build-up to the Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea next year.

"Sylvia Joe, winner of the 2012 and 2013 Fiji Women's Amateur Golf Open, is back to defend her title, together with Sharon Smith the Nett Winner in 2014," she said.

"Players have already arrived who played in last year's event and they include the ladies from Cairns, Sereanna Phillips of New Zealand, and Lady Robyn Tu'ivakano — President of the Tongan National Olympic Committee."
