IN THE ROUGH

Fiji’s own Vijay Singh has a mountain to climb in the final round of the Fiji International at a windy Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course today.

He is in 15th spot with a total score of 217, nine shots behind leaders Steve Jeffress and Jake Higginbottom on 208.

The former world No.1 will need big collapses by the leaders to be in contention for the main prize.

The 51-year old scored a two under 70 yesterday – his best score since tee-off on Thursday.

He had a bad start after he had a bogey in the 1st , 2nd and 9th but he recovered with the birdies on the 3rd 6th ,13th 15th and 17th.

Singh said the windy condition at Natadola was not helping at all.

“I had a really rough start for the first two holes as it was raining as well,”Singh said.

“I thought it was going to be a long day but a birdie on 3rd settled things down and a great birdie on the 6th .”

He said players need to be careful going into the final day.

“You got to be very careful with this course and there’s so much wind which put you on the defence all the time while you want to be aggressive at the same time. I did the best I can and hopefully tomorrow (today) I can go a little bit more and see what happens,” he added.

“It’s just tough playing in this wind.”
