US professional golfer Boo Weekley is keeping his fingers crossed for the play at hole 13 in the final round of the Fiji International on Sunday.

The organisers have confirmed that the player who shoots an eagle on that hole wins a block of land.

“Well that will be so cool I can get used to living here, that will be so awesome a block of land here,” he said.

Weekley has had a consistent year on the PGA Tour and is hungry for a win as his last victory was three year ago.

The 43-year-old international golfer is eager to add this weekend’s title to his resume as he is a cracker at the fairways.

“We are going to figure out what we are going to do. I like playing in the wind I don’t have much problem with the wind. As long as I can find the regular direction hits I will just try and stay focused.”

The 6 foot frame is impressed to see the golf course set-up.

“It is great and this is one of the most beautiful places in the world. It is going to be a fun week and I am really excited.

The course is really awesome with some of the elevation changes to the point where you got be careful because you got to find where the wind is.

“It’s a great layer and I think they did a great job, the size of the golf course, the speed and it’s going to be a fun week.”

Weekley also had a humble beginning in his career as he worked in a chemical plant to being a multiple winner on the PGA Tour. He turned pro in 1997, having reached the Top 50 in the world during his career. He has won three PGA Tour events including the 2013 Crowne Plaza Invitational, and Verizon Heritage back-to-back from 2007 to 2008.

Weekley is also well-known for his performance at the 2008 Ryder Cup where he excelled with Team USA.
