Sherma Ayrton and Jane Vorster teamed up to win the Pairs Shambles Ladies’ event at the Jumeirah Golf Estate’s Fire Course.

The format of the event which was sponsored by Park Hyatt Dubai, was played over a ‘Pairs Shambles’ format, where each player teed off individually, and the best shot was chosen.

From that selected tee shot, both players played their own balls until the hole was completed. The selected ball played as it lay on the course, while the second ball could be placed within a club length of the chosen one, maintaining the ground conditions.

Additionally, each player was required to contribute a minimum of six tee shots throughout the round.

Ayrton and Vorster returned an impressive net score of 59 (-13). Their scorecard contained 11 birdies and an eagle, securing their victory by a four-shot margin.

Notably, Sherma played six strokes under her handicap on the day, contributing significantly to their outstanding performance.
