LAHORE In the first Piracha Memorial Golf match that took place at the Lahore Gymkhana Golf course on December 12 and 13, the field of 100 amateur golfers and 58 seniors was strong indeed and quite a few of the contenders produced rounds of quality and managed to avoid wasting shots. In this regard Aleem-ur-Rahman who is a member of the Pakistan national golf team, topped the gross section in handicap category 0-9 and the successful one in net category was Mohsin Anwar. Aleem-ur-Rahman was in total command, his hitting perfect and approach shots crisp and the round of gross 70 is a reflection of that. Others who had a happy spell in this grand event held to honor the memory of Col. Piracha were Syed Abid Hussain net 65, Nasir Irshad net 69 and Amir Chaudry net 70. Of particular interest was the performance of old stagers like Khalid Amin, Lt.Gen.Tariq, Ishfaq Khalid and Jehangir Rahman. These oldies showed a good long game and their golf swings were smooth and almost as effective as the champion golfers. In the event for the invitees the toppers were Mahad Zafar in amateur net, Mohsin Zafar in amateur gross, Maj.Gen.Ziaullah in seniors net, Maj.Gen.Tariq Masood in seniors gross, Raja Mohammad Nazir in veterans net and Maj.U.D.Najmi in veterans gross.
