The first round of this three rounds Fatima Jinnah Amateur Ladies Golf Championship 2022, was a fighting engagement between zero to 14 handicapper lady golfers of golf playing prowess, who are filled with a yearning for accolades and distinction.
Young aspirants were also eagerly in action and had a chance to be in the golfing scene under the shadows of Pakistan’s golf stars.
Expectations were that the accomplished ones would prevail over their less experienced rivals, but that did not happen. A relatively less acclaimed face surfaced as the leader and she is Fareeda Tauseef of Royal Palm who turned out to be a symbol of fearlessness, daring and dauntlessness and compiled an impressive score of gross 81, thus emerging as the star performer of the first round and edging past her proficient rivals like Ghazala Yasmin, Iman Ali Shah, Parkha Ijaz and Rimsha Ijaz.
As scores stand at the end of the first round Farida Tauseef is the leader with a gross score of 81, followed by Ghazala Yasmin at 83 and Iman Ali Shah also at 83. At a score of gross 84 is Parkha Ijaz followed by Rimsha Ijaz at 85. Tehmina Ahmed, Zeb un Nisa and Ami Qin are bracketed together at 87.
As the championship moves into the second round on Saturday, the ferocious touch will become technically ingenious and enlightened and to remain the leader Fareeda Tauseef will have to show considerable application and intensity in her efforts. The aspiring ones in the handicap category 15-24 and those in handicap category 25-36 will enter the race for prestige and esteem.
Notable ones with assertive ambitions are the assiduous and painstaking Minaa Zainab, the experienced Shahzadi Gulfam, Samia Javed and Aisha Moazzam, the fast upcoming ones Laiba Ali Shah, Momina Tarrar, Adeena Ataullah and Amina Tiwana and quite a few others with a will to get recognized as lady players of aptitude and artistry.
The tee off on Saturday will take place at Royal Palm Golf Course through a shot gun start at 9.30am.
