Saad spearheads in 39th Millat Tractors Governors Cup Golf.

LAHORE -- Juvenile Saad Habib of Rumanza Golf Club, Multan, took over the leadership command in this 39th Millat Tractors Governors Cup Golf Championship, which now moves into the final phase here at the historic Lahore Gymkhana Golf Course.

During the second round yesterday, one saw the overnight golfer of excellence, Usman Akram Sahi in disarray and young and extremely talented Saad Habib surfacing as the champion in command and he virtually illuminated the championship proceedings with laudable golfing excellence and meritorious and well-crafted display of golfing skills.

His hitting off the tees on all par fours and par fives was power oriented with accuracy as the hall mark and his approach shots from the fairways were firm and crispy. And through perfection in application of golfing skills he managed five birdies, 11 regulation pars and stroke losses were encountered on two holes.

His five-handicap advantage plus dazzling golf play fetched him a remarkable second-round score of net 64 and that added to his first-round net score of 70 gave him an outstanding aggregate net score of 134, ten under par and he now leads the pack, as Governors Cup moves into the final day on Sunday.
