The 3rd Hi-Tech Couples Golf Tournament was planned in a way that the first day on Friday was purposefully an engagement for the lady aspirants, while the Couples and the men invitees had to wait for Saturday to get engrossed in an encounter for honours.
In the 18 holes contest on Friday, the playing format was stroke play and the champion turned out to be Parkha Ijaz, a national level golfer who plays to a handicap of one which is an attestation of her accomplished standing in national golf.
