Veteran Ali aims for fifth golf title

Maciu Malo
Saturday, July 26, 2014

VETERAN golfer Gaffar Ali will be chasing for his fifth championship title win in the Telemech Products- sponsored stroke event at the Lautoka Golf Links green this afternoon.

The 61-year-old who has been around at the Lautoka course for more than 20 years is eager to showcase his class against other top and young golfers in Lautoka.

Ali said age would not be a barrier as he set his focus on winning the top honours at his favourite golf course.

"I have stamped my mark on this course for the past 20 years and I still have a lot to offer for the sport," he said.

"I won four titles this year and I am determined to win more.

"Age is catching up but it fails to affect my performance.

"And my aim is to prove my status this weekend as one of the champions of this club."

Ali said more than 20 golfers were expected to compete at the tournament.

"I am looking forward to battle against other top golfers in Lautoka."

"All golfers will be out to win this tournament and I am ready to prove my worth in the game."

Ali will face stiff competition from former Lautoka Open champion Prem Chand, last week's winner Raymond Singh and other big names such as Anthony John, Charles Bhaskaram, Surend Pillay and John Krishna.

Tee-off is from 12.30 -1.30pm.
