The wet weather in the Central Division has disrupted the first day of the Fiji Open at the Fiji Golf Club yesterday.
A total of 214 golfers are taking part in the  event and they had to forfeit  a few holes because it was filled with water.
But this has not stopped top golfers from around the region of carding good scores.
New Zealand’s Ryan Fox is leading in the professional category after amassing 66.
Local golfers Anasa Seruvatu and Tomasi Tuivuna are in second and third place after each carding 67 and 68 respectively.
In the amateur division, national golf rep, Olaf Allen Junior leads with a score of 68 and in the women’s division Selai Pridgeon lead the pack.
“We have had a good day despite the weather and we hope the sky will clear up on Sunday,” Fiji Open co-ordinator Ilaisa Labaibure said.
Tee off today is at 7am before the top 90 players in the men’s division and the best 30 of the women play on Monday.
