Fiji golfer Sam Lee is still waiting for borders to reopen 12 months after his professional career was put on hold because of Covid-19.
The 30 year old turned pro six years ago and was playing on the Asian Development Tour when the pandemic brought the global sporting calendar to a stop.
“My last event on the Asian Development Tour was January 2020 and then I played the Asian Qualifying School in February,” he recalled.
“Then I was actually going to play a couple of events in New Zealand in March and then the borders closed.”
Back in Nadi while he waits for the world to open up again, the adjustment from touring professional to entering local pro-am tournaments is something Lee is still getting used to.
“Back in 2019 the Asian Development Tour had probably 15 events or so, so I was on the road probably at least 15 weeks.
“I played a few events on the Asian Tour as well and Australasian Tour so probably half the year I was on the road at least.”
