Three UAE pilots and one international pilot, who were all complete beginners at golf, took part in a putting challenge against the blindfolded professionals. They then faced a chip and putt challenge against the professionals, who played with their non-dominant hand.


There was also a long drive challenge where the player to hit furthest won a point, with the professionals swinging from their knees!

After the three rounds, the pilots and professionals tied with six points each.
