Faldo Series visits Pleasington

THE Faldo Series has announced its UK schedule for 2015 with Pleasington and The Dukes, St Andrews, as new hosts.

Continuing with last year’s popular format change, each tournament will comprise 54-holes and count towards the World Amateur Golf Ranking.
“Young golfers in the UK have benefited from the experience of playing in the Faldo Series since its launch in 1996”, said Sir Nick Faldo.
“Following its success last year, we have continued to hold 54-hole championships across the UK allowing players the opportunity to gain even more tournament experience and to compete for World Amateur Golf Ranking points.”
Faldo added: “I thank The R&A, European Tour, PGA Tour and the PGA of America for their on-going support which allows us to bring opportunity to thousands of talented young golfers worldwide every year.”
“We have been pleased to support Sir Nick, a three-time Open Champion, since he launched the Faldo Series in 1996,” commented Alison White, R&A assistant director of Golf Development
The UK schedule features six championships across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
For an entry fee of £50, boys and girls aged 12 to 21 will play one practice round and three tournament rounds at their chosen venue. The five age-group winners at each tournament – three boys and two girls – will join six-time Major winner Faldo at the 19th Faldo Series Grand Final.
The first three events in the schedule – Pyle & Kenfig (March 30-April 1), Pleasington (April 10-12) and Lough Erne (April 28-29) in Wales, England and Ireland respectively are open for entry until February 27. The Ireland Championship will remain a 36-hole competition.
The later three events – Old Fold Manor (June 29-July 1) near London, The Dukes, St. Andrews (July 6-8) in Scotland and Trentham in Staffordshire (August 18-20) – are open for entry until May 29.
