Faldo Series PH qualifying up at Beverly Place
THE COUNTRY’S top junior players travel to Beverly Place Golf and Country Club in Mexico, Pampanga, for the Faldo Philippine Qualifying that starts today until Thursday.
Already confirmed are 70 participants including national players Rupert Zaragosa, Carl Corpus and Jolo Magcalayo. Forty entries are taking part in the eliminations for 13-under, 16-under, 18-under and 21-under classes.
The top finishers in each division of the tournament organized by the Junior Golf Foundation of the Philippines (JGFP) will play in the regional finals in March next year at Mission Hills in Shenzhen, China, hoping to emulate the career paths of Faldo Series past winners like Major champions Rory McIlroy and Yani Tseng and Tour winners Nick Dougherty, Oliver Fisher, Marc Warren, John Parry, Rashid Khan, Melissa Reid, Florentyna Parker and Carly Booth.
Many of golf’s young superstars have launched their careers through the Faldo Series created by Sir Nick Faldo in 1996 to give opportunity to young people through golf and to help identify and nurture the next generation of champions.
Supported by golf’s governing bodies, 40 annual tournaments now take place in 30 countries worldwide, spanning Europe, the Middle East, North and South America, and Asia.
