Dlamini competes alongside 72 male professionals. Like her male counterparts, she has three amateur partners for the event.
The former South Africa’s number female amateur golfer and the other five visiting ladies compete for their own purse of E100 000, plus daily incentives worth E10 000.


According to information sourced from the tournament’s office in Ezulwini, 72 professionals and 108 amateurs make up the Pro-Am field. The event is played under the modified scoring system. Players who have made a double or worse may pick up their ball.


Asked about her journey in the paying ranks so far, the Lobamba-born golfer felt she was improving after each tournament.

“I will be continuing with the qualifiers between September and October.
