Local golfer hoping to win Fiji International after winning Fiji Open in June

Local golfer Sam Lee is hoping to complete a hometown double at the Fiji International which tees off this morning at Natadola Bay.

The 28-year-old has competed in every edition since the tournament launched in 2014.

Lee finished in a share of 47th place last year but, fresh from winning the Fiji Open in June, he believes this could be his year.

Lee is one of a record eight locals in the field this week and said the Fiji International has been a huge boost to the sport in Fiji.
