It will be a dream comes true for brothers Anasa Seruvatu, and Tomasi Tuivuna, as they make their debut at the 2015 Fiji International at the Natadola Bay Golf Championship Course on Thursday.

Seruvatu, 42 said they have waiting for this tournament to show case what they have.

“There is not much competition for us professional golfers in the country but this will be a big boost for us,” he said.

“This is a big game for OneAsia and there are a lot of top golfers and should be a good learning edged for us locals but we will be giving our big shot.”

The Nawaikama, Gau, Lomativiti natives, said they are following their dad’s footstep who was an ardent golfer Vilikesa Vunidakua at the Nausori Golf Club.

But it was their uncle Vilikesa Kalou who had set the bench mark being a pro himself when they were kids.

Seruvatu said that he learnt to play golf since he was 10 years old  at the Fiji golf club.

He joined the batch of amateur’s in 1992 and little did he realise that he would turn pro in August 1995.

“It was an interesting life in Vatuwaqa in those days as a kid, you become a caddie then you learn the game and take the swings. Then there you go.”

His younger brother Tomasi Tuivuna, 32 will be part of the big tournament outside the Trans-Tasman seas.

He qualified as the best local pro during the Fiji Open this year.

“I am excited to play alongside my brother as we have been involved in the sport for some time now. Playing the elites always gives the best of you,” he said.

Tuivuna who plays his trade at the Fiji Golf Club in Suva took up the sport when he was a 12-year-old boy.

“I did not become amateur but straight away joined the professional in 2005 after the trials,” he said.
