New Delhi:

Rain or shine - no weather is too bad for a game of golf and when the game is being played for a good cause then the weather becomes even more inconsequential.

The Gentleman's game also showed its generous side. The Emmar MGF Charity golf tournament at the Qutub golf course was all about generating funds for the Thalassemia India, an organisation devoted to fighting the disease.

The Who's Who of the Delhi social circuit was eager to compete for the cause.

"It's always great to contribute and while playing golf it's even better," said Amrit Kiran Singh, Vice President, Jack Daniels.

Most of the participants were buying mulligan or extra shots, allowed only in social matches, to add to the donations. Charity, it seemed, was blunting the competitive edge after all.

"I feel the competition decreases," said Charu Sharma, Sports Commentator.

"Competition isn't something which comes to mind while playing for charity," said Rohan Bopanna, Indian Tennis Team.

But in the end it turned to be a great day for golf. The participants met at the Tabula Rasa on Tuesday evening to felicitate the winners.

Tournament winner Rajeev Bhatnagar felt he had played his best game ever.

Not only just the gentlemen, even the ladies had a fair share in the contributions and an equally enviable score card.

A great day of golf for a good cause leads to a great evening of party for a good cause.
