Written By : MOIZ MUNIF . Neelkash Ram has set his sight on getting a spot in the national team as the Vodafone Fiji Open started yesterday. His campaign started on a disappointing note as the adverse weather conditions contributed towards his score of 77. Ram says that he has to step up today to be a serious contender for the title. “It was raining all the way and it did not make it any easy for me. They will be few high scores,” Ram said. “This is the last trials for the team to compete in the Eishehower Trophy in Adelaide and I’m looking forward to getting a spot out of the four that will be selected,” he said.
Ram who now resides in New Zealand says his plans are to focus on the task that is ahead of him and leave the results of day one behind him.
“I have won the Fiji Open three years in the row in the amateur side and finished second and third three times. It has been a good outing for me in this tournament,” Ram said.
“This tournament is the prime event and everyone looks forward to this. This is a limelight for Fiji as golfers from overseas enter as well. The next few days I just have to keep my calm and play my usual game,” he said. The 22-year old also had a piece of advice for the upcoming golfers looking to make a name for themselves.
“Just keep at it if just enjoy the game if you get too much in the technical side you wouldn’t want to play. Keep a cool head and try your best when ever you play,” Ram said.
