The Nawaikama villager from Gau, who caddies at the Fiji Golf Club in Vatuwaqa, Suva said he would never forget this tournament.

Tuivuci was on the driving range at the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course on Wednesday watching the professionals practice.

“I was watching them and seeing if I could get a chance to caddy for one of them,” he recalled.

“We shook hands when he came pass me and I asked him if I could caddy for him to which he immediately agreed.”

“He asked me on some occasions about the wind and on the greens he asked me a few times about the fall of the green and other things to which I gave my advice,”

Tuivuci said he this was the first time for him to be at the Fiji International and described Bhullar as a very nice person and very calm when playing.

“I am so happy he won because he is a very nice person,” he added.
