Vijay Singh says he's determined to win a title on home soil this week at the Fiji International golf tournament.
The former world number one has been practicing since Saturday and says adapting to the wind has been a particular challenge.
He finished in the top ten at last year's inaugural event at Natadola Bay - a course he designed - but has high sights set higher this time around.
"I was excited last year to come for the first time but my mind was more into how I'm going to fix this golf course but this year I'm a little bit more used to it and I know what to expect. I look forward to playing. This year I want to play and I want to win so I'm more focused into playing my game and trying to play to win".
The 52 year old Singh is happy to see more locals in the field this time around.
"There was only three or four last year - I'd like to see about ten of them playing. Even if they are not able to play really good at least they are in the field and that's going to give a little bit more chance for other players to try a little harder and get into the tournament. Six is a start - I mean there was four the first time and six now [so] maybe more next year".
Joining Vijay Singh in the field will be fellow pros Dinesh Chand and Sam Lee, his brother Krishna Singh, Anasa Seravatu, Bill Sugutaraga and Tomasi Tuivana.
