Golf battle looms

Maciu Malo
Thursday, June 19, 2014

TOP Lautoka golfers will battle for supremacy and honour in this weekend's DHL Global Forwarding-sponsored 18-hole stroke monthly medal event at the Lautoka Golf Link greens.

Some of the golfers highly-tipped to win the event are veteran Gaffar Ali, club vice- captain Suren Pillay, former Lautoka Open champion Prem Chand, Anthony John and last week's winner Charlie Bhaskaran.

The competition will be used as a selection ground for the Lautoka team to contest for the Theodore trophy to be played in Nadi next weekend.

Tournament spokesman Gaffar Ali said the tournament would attract top golfers in their quest for victory.

He said the top eight qualifiers would also qualify to represent Lautoka for the Theodore tournament.

"All regular golfers will be out in full force at this important event," said Ali.

"The tournament is expected to be tough because we will pick the best players for the Lautoka golf team at the upcoming Theodore trophy.

"We expect top scores as the course is fully mowed and the greens are in top condition."

Ali thanked Mahen Singh of DHL Global Forwarding for sponsoring the event.

The tournament would have A, B,C, juniors and beginners categories.

Tough competition is also expected in the beginners category where FNU vice-chancellor Dr Ganesh Chand will pit against Lautoka Chamber of Commerce Administrator Mohammed Salim.

New golfers are also invited to attend free lessons at the club.

Tee off from 12.30 to 1.30pm.
