DIVESH Kumar was crowned the new Fiji Junior Golf champion yesterday at the Fiji Golf Club in Suva.

The Nadi-based youngster carded 79 on day one and then carded 87 on day two to finish with a overall total of 166 at the Vatuwaqa golf course.

Marika Naupoto finished runner up with a score of 171 at the Waidamudamu Group and Bennion Family-sponsored event.

The overall nett winner was Tomasi Tuivuna who carded 135 ahead of runner up Shamal Ram who stood on 136.

Selai Gusuna won the girls title with a score of 198.

Club junior golf coordinator Veramu Rokotavaga said a total of 62 juniors competed in the event.

He said the number was the largest they have ever had with golfers coming in from as far as Ba, Nadi, Lautoka, Sigatoka and Pacific Harbour.

"We intend to have another clinic in the next school holiday," he said.

"Also, for next year's Fiji Junior Golf Championship, we want to have the age limit lifted from under-18 to under-21."

Rokotavaga added the sponsors of the competition would be back for next year's competition.

"This year, they gave more than $2000 for the tournament and also for the lunch and drink and Eric Nand also contributed along with the Fiji Golf Club and so next year, they would all be back."
