The Amateurs showed up their Professional neighbours with a dominant won 19.5-12.5 triumph to reclaim the Dubai Golf Trophy after 54 holes of drama at Jumeirah Golf Estates and Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club.

The 24th showdown between the top 16 Amateurs and Professionals consisted of 12 automatic qualifiers from the season-long UAE PGA tournaments and qualifying Emirates Golf Federation events across the UAE, plus four wildcard picks.

The Amateurs were cruising on Sunday, 10-6, and got over the line on Monday to wrest back the title they lost at Emirates Golf Club last year.

It was a more comfortable victory for the Ams as it was only a one-point margin last time around for the Pros, with the amateurs claiming nine of 16 singles to seal the deal.

The biggest win of the day was for Matt Brookes, who saw off Dan Byrne 7&6, before Jules Lompech halved with David Guinee to claim the trophy.
