Two former Masters champions say combating the wind will be a crucial to success at the Fiji International golf tournament, which tees off on Thursday.
Argentina's Angel Cabrera and Canada's Mike Weir are among three major winners in the field at Natadola Bay, alongside local hero Vijay Singh.
Both have had a chance to get out on the redesigned course for some practice rounds and the 47 year old Cabrera said he felt at home in the blustery Pacific conditions.
"Well I've actually played a lot in Europe and in Argentina it's also windy so I've played there for a long time, I like playing in the wind, so I don't think it's going to be a problem if it blows," he said.
Mike Weir said his daughter played a big part in his decision to play Natadola Bay, with Fiji on her bucket list of travel destinations.
He was also quick to praise the course redesign by friend and fellow Masters winner Vijay Singh.
"It gives you lots of room with the wind because the wind is such a factor and I think they've done a nice job planning for strategy around conditions," said the Canadian.
"That's what a good designer does and the mark of a good golf course play to what the conditions lay out there for you, they've done a nice job with that".
"I hear it blows quite a bit here and that will make the course difficult. Today without wind, you could shoot a good score but I think with the wind it'll be quite challenging," Weir concluded.
