The Faldo Series (since 1996) has announced its European tournament schedule for 2020 that will see 19 events played across 3 continents before a winner is crowned in November’s Grand Final at Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting & Golf Club, Abu Dhabi.
The Faldo Series aids junior golf’s development through serious competition and aims to grow the game by staging events in less-established golfing nations.
This year, more than 2,000 young hopefuls will tee it up in qualifying events around the world, in a bid to make it to the Abu Dhabi venue for a chance to claim one of junior golf’s most coveted prizes.
The schedule announcement follows one of the most successful Faldo Series years to date in 2019, and 2020 is set up to be even better with the South America Qualifier in Brazil returning for another year.
The Faldo Series wants to promote its ethos of ‘Growing The Game’ and ‘Developing Tomorrow’s Champions’.
During its events, the Faldo Series makes commendable efforts to grow the game at a local level.
Sir Nick’s team of industry experts, including coach Keith Wood, encourage communities to become inspired by golf, ensuring juniors from all backgrounds have the opportunity to learn and be introduced to the game.
Each stage is played at immaculate courses and prestigious venues in the lead up to the Grand Final, where they will tee it up hoping to be crowned Faldo Series Europe Champion from a field of over 70 golfers.
The first event on the European schedule is the Middle East Girls and Boys, hosted at Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting & Golf Club.
