LAHORE: In the Lake City Winter Classic Golf Tournament 2019 contested at the Lake City Golf and Country Club Golf Course in Lahore, the accomplished golfers from the golf clubs of Lahore battled it out in elegant playing conditions. Playing format was stroke play and while each contender was eager for victory, in the end those who managed to hit accurate shots with consistency managed to emerge as the radiant and luminous ones. The golf course had its own challenges to offer and that included exquisite fairways and fast greens.
In the race for honors in gross section, the experienced one Sohail Naseem of Lahore Gymkhana, kept his nerves in control and displayed command and assurance in hitting his tee shots, backed by smooth putting on the greens and this enabled him to collect the first gross prize which represented a huge accomplishment. Col. Ayub of Garrison also played outstanding golf but he had to be content with the runners up position. His only consolation was that he lost to the ultimate winner by one stroke . Another participant who played splendidly was Lt. Gen. (r) Hilal Hussain, President of Pakistan Golf Federation. Notably powerful were his tee shots and he was confident on the greens, but a three putt on the eighth hole resulted in a score that was good enough to fetch him the third gross prize only. However, during the course of the outing, he hit an excellent eight iron shot on the par three, fourth hole and the ball went straight into the hole resulting in a hole in one. And the reward for this high quality lucky shot was a superb golf set awarded by Gohar Ejaz of Lake City Golf Club. And Lt Gen (r) Hilal shared that the moment he hit the shot, he knew that it will bring a memorable instant for him that was loaded with joy and blessings.
As for the performers in net category, the best net was won by Sohail Kabir. He played to his handicap and played fine and error free golf. Second net went to Azam Malik, another player with a good swing and ability to hit unerringly. Third net winner was Brig. Musaddiq.
At the conclusion of the Lake City Winter Classic Golf Tournament, Mr. Gohar Ejaz gave away prizes to the winners.
