Weather conditions at the golf course carried ample touch of humidity that affected performance of many accomplished golfers like Waleed Zubair ,Tariq Qureshi and others.The combination of Waleed and Tariq managed to win positions other than the first.
In the handicap category 10 to 18 the dominant performers were Nauan Nayyar in the net section and Faraan Ahmed Irfan in the gross competition.Although they fall in the higher handicap group,they owe their victories to some fanciful hitting.
