Jordan Mixed Open report: What happened at Ayla Golf Club?

Players from the Ladies European Tour, Challenge Tour and Staysure Tour teed it up in a historic event which could pave the way for more mixed events in future.

It was Daan Huizing of the Challenge Tour who came out on top, and after reeling in 36-hole leader Meghan MacLaren.

The Dutchman shot a stunning final round of 68 to win the first edition of ground-breaking event by two shots.

MacLaren seemed to be in the driving seat with a 5-shot lead after five holes. However, some back-nine struggles, combined with Huizing’s impressive display saw her slip into second.

Having won once already this season on the LET, MacLaren was full of confidence and showed that the women’s game is no weaker than the men’s.

Huizing may have lifted the trophy, but overall, the sport of golf is the real winner.

Jordan Mixed Open report: Talking points

Not only has this tournament made history in terms of men and women competing together, but it also saw the first married couple ever to compete in the same event.

Scott and Kylie Henry both teed it up this week, and it really was brilliant to see.

Scott has the bragging rights in the end though, finishing ahead of his wife in a tie for 8th.


Meghan MacLaren is a huge advocate for equality between the male and female games and this week, she once again aired her thoughts on Twitter.

The only way in through things will change is through those involved with golf speaking out, and Meghan is the perfect example of someone doing all they can to achieve equality.
