Coinciding with Fiji’s Rio Olympic gold medal victory celebrations the Fiji Golf Club had their way of celebrating the historic win.

“To celebrate Fiji’s gold medal win at the Rio Olympic Games, the Fiji Golf Club organised their own Gold Medal tournament at the Vatuwaqa course on Monday,” committee member, Vijay Madhavan said yesterday.

Seventy two brave golfers took the field and under some challenging conditions completed the 18 holes stable ford competition.

“Jack Reddy who is used to playing in wet and slippery conditions excelled on the day. He outplayed everyone and returned a massive 44 stable ford points to take the gold medal,” he said.

“The silver medal was won by professional Tomasi Tuivuna on 40 points and the bronze medal was won by Kun-Hee Park with 39 points.”

Meanwhile, last Saturday’s competition was sponsored by the Fiji Golf Club where Shaun Hwang won the open grade category.

Paul Bennion was runner-up while Penisoni Gauna won the third place.
