OUR STAFF REPORTER LAHORE - Shafiq Masih of Lahore Gymkhana played well to gross an impressive three-under-par score of 69 at Defence Raya Golf Course and appeared as the top performer in a field of 75 professional golfers on the opening of the first Sayid Paper Open Golf. In the process he edged past many notable contenders like Shabbir Iqbal and Matloob Ahmed and Shahid Javed Khan. Teeing off from hole number eight, Shafiq owed his brilliance to five birdies, three in succession on holes 11, 12 and 13 and the others on holes one and five.
