Despite his dismal performance at the Denarau Open last weekend, Sam Lee remains optimistic that he would perform better in the 51st Ba Open at the Rarawai Golf Course, this weekend.

Lee had shot one over par 73 to finish fourth in the Amigo Traders sponsored Denarau Open Pro-am at the Denarau Golf & Racquet Club last Saturday.

He was outwitted by Suva’s Tomasi Tuivuna who shot two under par 70 to claim top pro prize followed by a tie in second spot by Zoheer Ahmad and Arvind Lal who both shot one under 71 in the stroke event.

 

Lee who recently returned from the United States admitted that it was not his day.

“I didn’t quite have the iron shots on Saturday, It just wasn’t sharp enough and I wasn’t able to score,” Lee said

“I’ll play the following events, Ba Open this weekend, followed by Lautoka event and then the President’s Cup the week after.”
