Bilal clinches Royal Palm Caddies Golf title

LAHORE – Muhammed Bilal clinched the Royal Palm Golf Tournament for Caddies trophy here at the Royal Palm golf course on Friday.

Playing to a handicap of 18, Bilal secured honors for himself and prize money of Rs 20,000 by hitting accurately and showing consistency over the 18 holes outing. With a score of net 71, he emerged as winner of the competition and also earned permission to play golf at the golf course. Kamran Mashal was runner-up with a net score of 73 and earned prize money of Rs 16,000 while M Aftab secured the third position with net score of 73.

Others, who played well, were Ather Khalid (net 75), Zahid Ali (net 76), Ikram Ali (net 78) and M Nauman (net 79). Two others also had a score of net 79 and they are Muzaffar Khan and M Ikram. All of them were given away cash prizes ranging between Rs 12,000 and Rs 4,000.

For the caddies, the competition represented a fortunate moment in their lives as they felt honor and elation at being able to play on a wonderful golf course. The caddies are considered an integral part of the golf arenas and while they understand all technical aspects of the game and rarely get a chance to swing their own golf clubs and thereby remain deprived. It is fair on the part of golf management of Royal Palm to initiate a process where the caddies get a chance to actually compete on a prominent golf course of the country and exhibit their talent in a way that they can get categorized as golfers of ability.  The Royal Palm caddies felt delighted by the initiative of Royal Palm to hold a golf tournament that was only open to caddies and give a chance to the gifted and keen ones to showcase what they are capable of. A total of 33 caddies participated in the event which carried prize money of Rs 100,000.
