Golf player Meghan MacLaren believes that the inaugural Jordan Mixed Open is a “fantastic opportunity” to show female talent to a wider audience.
Meghan MacLaren is one of fourteen players from the Ladies European Tour who will compete against the players of Challenge Tour and Staysure (Seniors) Tour for an award of over 300,000 Euro at Ayla Golf Club.
Players will take part in the Greg Norman-designed course from various tees depending on the tour which they compete on the men of the Challenge Tour facing a 7,100-yard course in the 54-hole event, and the over-50s from the Staysure Tour covering 6,601 yards and LET players 6,139 yards.
The first prize of 54,000 Euro compares favourably to the 12,700 Euro MacLaren won recently in order to make a successful title in the Women’s NSW Open, but the 24-year-old player is also focused on the bigger picture.
MacLaren thought that it would be notice if a woman win the game because she knew she has ability and making every efforts can take women to victory, adding that fantastic opportunity and huge credit can come to those who made it happen. All we have to do is paying attention and publicity.
Mac Laren said that she did not know if her father David, who was head of Staysure TourOne is responsible for making it happen but she did know he was really involved in it. With his help she won the 2016 Curtis Cup.
She supposed that GolfSixes might be the closest one which men and women could be in the same practical tournament, and it will be really interesting to see one player from each tour in each group.
Laren believed that there would be more chances for women to show what they are capable of in the time to come and Jordan Open is not the odd.
