LAHORE: Mohsen Zafar won the Royal Palm Golf Champion title at the Royal Palm Club Golf Course here Monday. Mohsen, an accomplished golfer, successfully warded off the challenge launched by some awesome golfers of ability. With steady rounds of gross 76 on the first day and a gross 78 in the final round, Mohsen compiled a winning aggregate of 154 which fetched him the title and also enabled him to beat players like Hussain Hamid, Shahid Abbas Awan, Omer Salamat and Faisal Sayid. Much was expected from young Hussain Hamid but in the final stages two errant shots let him down and he had to be content with the runner-up slot.
For Hussain Hamid, this was a setback as he finished five strokes behind the champion Mohsen. In other events, Jameel Khalid became the seniors’ champion and in the competition for the captains prize, awarded to a player with the best net score, the winner was Abdul Islam Nazir. At the conclusion of the championship, prizes were awarded to the winners by Ramzan Sheikh, CEO of Royal Palm Club.
