NATIONAL rep Sam Lee took out the Jacks of Fiji Nadi Open Championship title with an incredible 18 shot victory at the Nadi Airport Golf Club on Saturday.

Lee finished the tournament with an even par 210 after 54 holes over three days.

The 24 year old scored 69, 73 and 68.

Veteran Ram Khelawan was second with a total score of 228. He scored 75, 76 and 77. Khelawan edged national rep Abid Hussain by one stroke.

Lee participated at the inaugural Fiji International at the Natadola Bay Championship Course earlier this month.

He was the lone player to participate in the 72 holes tournament as an amateur.

Lee, Hussain and Olaf Allen Jr will represent Fiji at the World Amateur Teams Championship in Japan next month.

Club president Munesh Prasad said Lee was outstanding throughout the three days.

"Lee made a perfect start with one under par 69 and set the pace with a five shot lead. He maintained his form and won by a big margin. Khelawan who was the runner-up edged the other national elite squad members which is a good result for him."
