The trio will battle for top honours as to who will win the gold bar which is at stake in the past four months of the four-tournament series at the Pearl Resort Championship Golf course in Pacific Harbour.

However, yesterday, the organisers revealed the winner could be anyone.

"At this stage, it is still open to anyone," Elle Stephenson, the tournament co-ordinator said.

"Anyone can still win the tournament but it'll depend heavily on how they perform in this last tournament."

Stephenson said the recipient of the gold bar would be named after the presentation for the winners of the fourth tournament.

"There are prizes for those golfers that will win in this fourth tournament before we will announce the player that has accumulated the most number of points."

She added all golfers wold be gunning to win the gold bar.

The overall winner receives a gold bar, the second wins a tour on the Captain Cook Cruises.

The event tees off at 9am today.
