Lee Wins Ba Open

National rep Sam Lee won the 81st   F.R.C Manubhai sponsored Ba Open yesterday.

Lee, who competed in the 2014 World Amateur Team Championship in Japan, won the overall gross title scoring 137 at the FSC Ba Golf Club.

The 24-year old set a new tournament record beating Vijay Singh’s 1981 score of even par 138.

“At the World Amateur Golf Team Championship in Japan recently I did not do well,” he said.

“And also the team did not do well because I think that the course made a lot of difference. I was not aware that the tournament course record was set by Vijay. I was only aware of Vikrant Chandra’s record of five under par.”

Chief guest President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau said the Ba Open was special.

“It’s one of the longest running tournaments in the country and with the sponsors RC Manubhai, it will go a long way,” Ratu Epeli said.

RC Manubhai managing director Dinesh Patel said they were proud to support the tournament for the last 44 years.

“We congratulate the winners and especially to Sam Lee and we will continue to be part of the tournament in future,” he said.

Nadi businessman Abid Hussein (140) was gross runner-up, overall nett title winner was Prashal Chandra (127), and runner-up Sunil Dutt (135). Pacific Harbours’s Waisake Bati won the professional category while Tomasi Tuivuna and Anasa Seruvatu settled for second and third place respectively.
