Two Lautoka youngsters have decided to make golf their number one sport and hope to represent Fiji one day.

Stephan Leger, 11 and Alex Qiokata, 13, have been playing regular golf amongst the big boys at Lautoka Golf club each week.

Club chairman of trustees Raymond Singh said the two youngsters have been showing a lot of interest and the older golfers have been pushing them to reach for greater heights.

“They have a lot of potential and their willingness to learn is incredible,” Singh said.

“In the next few years they will reap the rewards if they continue on this path. The club will definitely be there every step of the way.”

Leger, of Lautoka Primary School said he used to rugby but once he started playing golf he has come to like it better.  Qiokata, a student of Lautoka Delana Primary School said golf was his number one sport and his aim was to win a place in the Fiji team.

The duo receive a prize each week for their participation.

Meanwhile, last Sunday’s 18 Individual Stableford Event, sponsored by Tesla Electrical Products was taken out by sales executive Manuel Ajay who recorded a super nett 64 in the A Grade. Former Fiji Football Association referee Davendra Mudaliar captured the B grade on a score of nett 69 while the C Grade prize went to newcomer Avinesh Pillay who carded 70.
