FAISALABAD: Taimur Khan carded a three-over-par 75 on the final day to clinch the 55th National Amateur Golf Championship after finishing with an aggregate score of three-over-par 291 at the Defence Raya Golf Course in Lahore yesterday.
Taimur enjoyed a brilliant day on the golf course and except for a brief period where he carded a triple bogey at the 13th hole, he remained on course for the title.
The triple bogey certainly slimmed his chances of victory with Ghazanfar Mehmood taking the lead and looking in command after the 13th hole. However, Taimur bounced back and carded par scores on the 14th and 15th holes, as Mehmood carded bogeys, to take the lead yet again.
Taimur then held firm and ended the fourth round with a one stroke lead to claim the title. “It is a great moment for me,” he said. “I will take my golf career forward with more vigour and devotion.”
