LAHORE - Pakistan's disabled golfer Saleem Raza, enjoying an amazing golfing season, finished at number sixth position in Disabled World Invitational Golf Championship of Sweden at the Bokskogen Golf Course.

According to information made available here on Monday, only 40 top golfers with physical disabilities from across the world participated. Saleem made his presence felt in the elite event by finishing in the top 10 places of the event which concluded on Sunday.

Saleem got noticed because of his notable accomplishment during the recently held Disabled World Golf Championship in UK in early July where he topped in the event.

In the search for more honours for himself and his country of origin, Saleem did manage to fare reasonably well during the Swedish Golf event played over two rounds. He was outstanding off the tees and won compliments for his accurate and powerful hitting but on at least six greens he was let down by bad putts.

"The pace and contours of the greens were too demanding and you do not get a chance to practise on similar greens in Pakistan,” he said.

Saleem expressed gratitude to Punjab Golf Association (PGA) and Pakistan Golf Federation (PGF) for all the support which made his trip possible. "I am so pleased that I rendered some service to my country, by improving its image amongst many world class players and organisers,” he concluded. He will return home on August 14.
