KARACHI: Talented Hamza Shikoh continued to lead in the Sindh Amateur Golf Championship after a second round outing of 76 here at the Karachi Golf Club on Saturday.

Hamza, who is off from his Turkish University because of the Covid-19 pandemic, enjoys a one shot lead over the duo of his elder brother Araslan Shikoh and CAS Amateur champion Saim Shazli. He has a two-day aggregate of 147 primarily because of a splendid 71 on the opening day of the 54-hole championship.

Saim carded 73 in the second round to stay in the hunt for the coveted title long with Arsalan who followed his opening day 73 with 76. They are followed by the duo of Yashal Shah and Omar Shikoh Khan at 151.
