ONE local golfer will get a chance to rub shoulders against some of the world's best during the inaugural Fiji International next month.

The fight for the lone spot will be during the 36 holes two-day qualifying tournament which tees off at the Natadola Bay Championship Course this Friday.

Professional and amateur golfers will be among the mix.

Vikrant Chandra, Apenisa Koroicure, Anasa Servuvatu, Tomasi Tuivuna, Mira Singh, Veramu Rokotavaga, Inoke Bolakoro and Seru Matairala are among the seeded professionals.

United States-based Sam Lee, Olaf Allen Junior, Anuresh Chandra, Abid Hussain and Roneel Prakash will lead the amateur charge.

The qualifying will be played from the blue tees and a lost ball will result in the player returning to original spot to play with a penalty.

The leader after 36 holes will earn a spot at the Fiji International to be played at the Natadola course from August 14-17.

In the event of there being a tie for the first position after the qualifying rounds, the players will then play sudden-death, hole-by-hole playoff until the qualifier is determined.

Tee off time for the first 18 holes are: 10.45am Olaf Allen Jnr, Apenisa Koroicure, Anasa Servuvatu, Tomasi Tuivuna; 10.53am Vikrant Chandra, Amitesh Chandra, Mohmood Buksh, Vili Sauturaga; 11.01am Anuresh Chandra, Roneel Prakash, Arvind Lal, Vinesh Prasad; 11.09am Waisea Vati, V K Singh, Abid Hussain, Jim Luita; 11.17am Mira Singh, Veramu Rokotavaga, Inoke Bolakoro, Seru Matairala; 11.25am Barroon Hussian, Sam Lee, Taitusi T, Zoheer Ahmad; 11.33am Richard Kwon, Peveni Piukala, Mohammed Rizwan.
