Bomco tops golf field

TEAM Bomco is the top seed for the Sigatoka Motor Spares-sponsored four-man Ambrose event which will be played at the Fiji Sugar Corporation Rarawai course in Ba tomorrow.

Manish Patel will captain Team Bomco which will also include Rohit Chandra, Asish Chand and Jyoti Lal all of whom are renowned golfers in Ba.

Natadola Bay's Avinesh Gosai, who is a frequent visitor to the Rarawai course, will also field a strong line up.

Ba Golf Club executive Rajesh Prasad said 15 teams would participate in the day-long tournament.

Prasad said the recent rain had helped soften the greens.

"The Ambrose format is very popular as it allows all standards of golfers to mix and play together with equal enjoyment irrespective of ability," he said.

"It also helps to promote teamwork as one score is recorded per hole and generally minimises the amount of time looking for lost balls."

In the Ambrose format, each player hits off the tee, the best shot is selected and all other players pick up their ball and place it, within one hands pan, alongside the best ball.

Each person then hits a second shot from the same spot. The best shot is again selected. This continues until the ball is in the hole. On the putting green, the best ball is marked and the other balls are played from this position. One score is thus recorded on each hole. The event will tee off at 10.30am. The club will hold the 2017 season closing event sponsored by General Machinery Ltd.
