Teenagers Jamie-Roselyn Camero (The Els Club) and Aasiya Saleem (Montgomerie Golf Club) both shot rounds of three under par 69 to tie for first place in the 2023 Montgomerie Ladies’ Open.

The 18-hole event, a qualifier for the 2023 – 24 Emirates Golf Federation Order of Merits, attracted 29 players who teed off from the Red Tee course in the two-tee start.

The conditions of the event determined a tie being decided by a sudden-death playoff.

After three tied holes in regulation par 5’s over three loops of playing hole 18, the Organising Committee declared a tie, with both Jamie and Aasiya sharing the title and prizes.

Jamie, who is 17 years old, only two days earlier signed up for the University of Central Florida for a four-year golf scholarship beginning in September 2024.

A three birdie – no bogey round saw Jamie, who plays off a + 3 handicap post her score.

Montgomerie Golf Club member, 14-year-old Aasiya Saleem, playing off a 1 handicap shot the best round of her life, a 69 - with four birdies and one bogey.
