Fiji golfer continues in Queensland

10:42 am on 21 May 2007

Young Fijian golfer Marika Batibasaga will remain in Queensland to fine tune his game after a disappointing finish to last week's Keperra Bowl.

Batibasaga shot a one over par 73 in the third round that resulted in him dropping out the chase for a top three finish and he eventually ended tied for 15th place.

He closed at eight under par, ten shots behind the winner.

Batibasaga is expected to play in a couple of local tournaments in Queensland before returning to Fiji next month to defend his Open Championship title.
