Team Asia won the event, which was played at the Vidago Palace Golf Course in Portugal, by 17 points to 15, with Tiffany securing 2.5 points from her four matches. She is pictured here alongside Margaret Hamilton, the Hong Kong Ladies Captain.

The event is named after Patsy Hankins (1945-2015), who was one of the most respected golf administrators New Zealand has produced. Her legacy as a trailblazer in golf administration grew due to her long list of achievements and kind and gentle approach. From fostering the development of the women’s game to playing a key role in the amalgamation of men’s and women’s golf, Hankins was incredibly influential and will leave a long lasting legacy in the game not only in New Zealand but around the world. Patsy was an accomplished player, but it was in administration that she really made her mark.

The Patsy Hankins Trophy consists of three days of play, with the first two comprising five foursomes matches each morning and five fourball matches each afternoon. The final day is devoted to singles. Tiffany partnered with Hannah Green of Australia in the foursomes and fourball matches, winning two out of their three games. She halved her singles match with Denmark's Puk Lyng Thomsen.
