During the Pakistan Day Golf Tournament held to celebrate this occasion yesterday at the alluring Royal Palm Golf. 90 golfers participated to honour Pakistan and attempt to become victors and get associated with title bearing happening. And while all participants were fully excited about their chances of victory, they showed their energized feeling by wearing the green Pakistani colors and wearing the National Logo.
Once the tee off blasted off through a shot gun start, it became a stormy affair with each competitor trying to outdo the other. In the process, some over eager ones lost their bearing and the inaccuracy in shot making acquired a frequent touch and as a result even a few skilled ones were thrown out of the race. The more smart ones however etched their names as winners on this important Pakistan Day linked occasion. They stayed afloat, using their woods hitting ability effectively, their shot off the tees long and accuracy oriented and pars coming consistently.
Notable was the performance of Abbas Chaudhry, who turned out to be the best one in the gross category, carding a gross 78 and acquiring the Pakistan Day Golf Title. In the gross section the other adept one was Faisal Sayid, who made a determined effort but lost to Abbas by a stroke. While Abbas compiled a score of gross 78, Faisal finished at gross 79.
As for the competitors seeking to emerge as the top ones in net segment, the effort of Sameer Iftikhar, a five handicapper needs to be complimented.
