ONLY the best 24 golfers from Ba will qualify for the Theodore Cup in Nadi next week.

And the names will be known after today's qualifying round at the Ba Golf Club course.

Top names such as Rohit Chandra and Asish Chand looked set to qualify, however, all players will have to prove their worth when the event concludes this afternoon.

Club treasurer Rajesh Prasad said players needed to prove their worth.

"We got some top players around but we thought to introduce this qualifying round to make a fair selection for our Ba representatives," he said.

"Everyone is looking forward to the Theodore Cup in Nadi. We want to select our best 24 players to compete at the event."

Prasad said the best eight players in each grade would be selected.

"There are three categories, so only the top eight players from each category will make the cut to the event in Nadi.

"We got many capable players that can qualify but we want to select the team on merit."

The event tees off at 10 this morning.
