Three former Masters champions are in the field for this week’s Fiji International.
It’s fair to say that most of us would be more than happy to be spending the week in Fiji this week, and it’s also fair to say that the Fiji International that tees off this week will boast its best field since its inception in 2014.
The Fiji International is a tri-sanctioned event by the PGA Tour of Australasia, the Asian Tour and the European Tour and has three former Masters champions in the field this week; Angel Cabrera, Vijiay Singh and Mike Weir.
And there are also a bunch of great young golfers in the field including 85 former tournament winners such as Ryan Fox, Michael Sim, Andrew Dodt, Jordan Zunic, and Scott Hend.
“The Fiji International field this year has incredible depth of talent; Vijay Singh, Jeunghun Wang, Ryan Fox and Scott Hend have all joined us after competing in the year’s final Major last week,” said Gavin Kirkman, CEO of the PGA of Australia which oversees the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia.
“We also have six Olympians in the field who represented Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Bangladesh, Korea and Malaysia. But I think the most poignant indicator of the talent assembled in Fiji this year is the fact that in the field we have 85 players who have recorded victories on Tours around the world.”
The Fiji International will tee off on Thursday 17th August with the champion to be crowned on Sunday 20th August.
