- WAISEA NASOKIA Edited by Osea Bola Feedback:

Fijian profession­al golfer Sam Lee has set his sight on lifting the Sheraton Golf Classic title at the Denarau Golf and Racquet Club on Saturday. The four- day of the 72-hole event begins today featuring top profession­al golfers in the region.

Lee is fresh from his first Cardos Fiji Open title victory at the same venue over the weekend.

“My first year in the Classic was when I turned profession­al in 2015,” he said.

His best finish was third in 2016 where he shot a final round 64.

“This event is still important but not as much as the Fiji Open I wanted to win the Fiji Open since playing junior golf at the Fiji Golf Club in Suva. I will still do my best to win the event, it would be awesome to win back-to- back. Apart from Lee, the top profession­als are defending champions Pieter Zwart, Ryan Fox, senior champion Glen Joynerand Brad Shilton.

“I want to thank my sponsor Raymond Vuksich for sponsoring me to go and play overseas. I really appreciate the fact that I don’t have to worry about the expenses as much, so I can focus more on golf.”
