Jack Yule secured his spot in next month’s UAE Challenge at Saadiyat Beach Golf Club after emerging victorious at the Clutch Pro Tour’s Al Zorah Masters, the second and final event of the circuit’s UAE Series.

The Englishman carded rounds of 66, 73 and 68 in Ajman to secure a two-stroke triumph over Jaka Babnik and former Abu Dhabi Championship winner Gary Stal to win £5,000.00 and the invitation into the UAE Challenge from the Emirates Golf Federation.

“This is my first time in the UAE and I absolutely love it,” said the 29-year-old, who played in the DP World Tour’s Made in Himmerland as an amateur when he was 21.

“I probably holed some really good footage today, I putted really well. I had few three whacks but they all even out in the end.

“I’ve played a few events on the Challenge Tour before, I’m still trying to get there.

“This victory sets the season up in the right direction. Let’s see what happens.”

Dubai-born Natalii Gupta was crowned the leading female across the two events, with the 19-year-old amateur securing four invites to Clutch Pro Tour events this season.

Robert Fiala, Operating and Marketing Manager at the EGF, said: “It is great to have the Clutch Pro Tour here in the UAE for the first time. We are excited to see such events offering opportunities for both male and female golfers on our EGF calendar and we look forward to enhancing a close relationship for the good of UAE based players as well as international golfers.”

This is the first time the Clutch Pro Tour, which is the official feeder Tour to the Challenge Tour, has held events in the UAE. The circuit prides itself in being an 'open access' pro golf tour, offering high quality tournaments that provide a platform for player development.

The EGF received 20 invitations into each event, which went to young professionals in the region, local amateurs and UAE National Team players.
