7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Amer­i­can Paige Spi­ranac will once again be in ac­tion at the Dubai Ladies Masters just one year af­ter mak­ing her pro­fes­sional de­but at the event at Emirates Golf Club. The 23-year-old earned an in­vite last year thanks to a huge so­cial me­dia fol­low­ing but has gone on to win her first pro event on the Cac­tus Tour and im­pressed when mak­ing the cut at the Ladies Scot­tish Open. Now Spi­ranac hopes she can de­liver an im­proved per­for­mance in Dubai along­side a field that in­cludes de­fend­ing cham­pion Shan­shan Feng, Laura Davies and fel­low Amer­i­can Cheyenne Woods. “Dubai was an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence when I first vis­ited the city last year. I couldn’t have asked for a bet­ter place to come for my first tour­na­ment,” said Spi­ranac. “Play­ing Dubai last year was a great learn­ing curve for me both in­side and out­side the ropes. Through it all, I had a great ex­pe­ri­ence and I am look­ing for­ward to be­ing a part of the event again.”
