Another celebrity golfer competing alongside was 2021 Spanish Open winner and European Ryder Cup star Rafa Cabrera from Spain. To add feminine colour was the six times European Tour winner Charlie Hull whose mere presence on the golf course was an athletic site and she turned out to be an inspiration for the golfing fans and in particular golf playing women of Pakistan, many of whom were there for coaching tips and intimate closeness.
