ONE local golfer will get a chance to rub shoulders with some of the world's best during the Inaugural Fiji International which will be played at the Natadola Bay Championship course from August 14-17.

A qualifying tournament will be held at Natadola in early August to determine the lone local qualifier.

The qualifying tournament will be played over 36 holes and is open to all professionals and amateur golfers with a handicap of four and below.

National Golf Association secretary Amitesh Chandra said this tournament would bring out the best from the locals.

He said only one player would receive a ticket to participate at the Fiji International apart from United States-based Vijay Singh, Australia-based Marika Batibasaga and Japan-based Dinesh Chand.

"This is a once in a life time opportunity for the golfers who want to be part of the inaugural Fiji International," Amitesh said.

"The frontrunners for the spot are Tomasi Tuivuna, Vikrant Chandra and Anasa Seruvatu while Olaf Allen Jr and Anuresh Chandra will lead the charge from the amateurs."
