All age group winners have now received their invitations from Sir Nick Faldo to join him and the other winners to play in the thirteenth Faldo Series Asia Grand Final. The Grand Final is being played on the beautiful Faldo Designed course in Dang Nang, Vietnam on March 20th – 22nd 2019.
Sanctioned by the Asian Tour and the Asia Pacific Golf Federation, the Asia Grand Final will bring together more than 90 of Asia’s leading junior golfers, plus winners from the 2018 European Grand Final.
All results from this year’s Grand Final will count towards the World Amateur Golf Rankings (boys & girls) and Sir Nick will arrange for the overall boy and girl champion to play in a professional tour event in the United States.
The sixth time Major Champion will spend time with all the players to pass on his advice and experience from more than 40 years of playing at the highest level which will be an invaluable experience for all the players. We would like to take opportunity to wish all Australian representatives every success in the competition and hopefully win their age group competition.
