Fijian International defending champions Steven Jeffress will be in full force to repeat his victory when the dust settles on Sunday.

His win this weekend will definitely be his best 40 th birthday gift present before November 25.

“I missed the cut but played well. My form coming into this tournament is good and is better than last year,” he said.

The Aussie champ has just recently returned from playing at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland which is dubbed as one of the richest golf tournaments on the European Tour.

He said there would be tough competition out there especially with the wind.

 

“This is one event you get money and then get exempted and then make a return later in other events. It is a massive competition and I will be lucky to win and if I win again it will change my life again or any other winner for that matter.”

The 39 -year-old said that he has some strategies in place that he would employ in the greens.

“If you get it in the wind, then you will have no control over the ball. It is a not necessary a long course, but you have to hit it in certain spots obviously if it is straight then it is good on any golf course but around here you will have to position your ball.

“That low ball is a very important shot. You need a bit of skill to play that shot but most guys here can do it.”
