Price backs Singh to win

ZIMBABWEAN Nick Price believes the weather conditions and course set up would play a major role in determining the scores during the Fiji International.

The 57-year-old, who is the captain of the international team for the Presidents Cup, said the course was tight.

"If it is hard then the scores will be high," Price said.

"But I think they are looking at some single digits under par to win.

"Maybe seven or eight under par. The course will be challenging."

Price, who has travelled around the world playing the sport, has never been to Fiji before. This is his first overseas trip since 2010 after surgery.

Price said he would love to see his buddy Vijay Singh lift the title.

"It is a place where I always wanted to come to especially being friends with Vijay," he said.

"It is pretty fascinating that such a small island could produce a golfer like Vijay.

"It is great for golf that we finally have a big event here. Golf has gone through a slump through recession but in Pacific Asia it is huge.

"The wind will be a factor and there are couple of holes that are very difficult when the wind blows but that can be fixed. Just to make it easier for the average golfers.

"It is so beautiful out there that it is hard to concentrate on golf.

"Vijay being here is huge and all the eyes on him and I'd love to see him win it.

"I would be happy to make the cut. The scores will depend on the weather and how the course is set up."

Price will tee off with Matthew Griffin and Mark Brown from the first hole at 12.05pm.
