Sir Nick Faldo has announced the first Major Champions Invitational for junior golfers to be played at Bella Collins GC Florida March 12-14.
The concept is for major champions to inspire and mentor the next generation of golfers and make an impact on the growth of the game. A field of up to 100 young golfers, boys and girls, will compete under the nomination of a major champion who has hand picked them. It is for young people who want a career in professional golf.
Major champions currently committed to the tournament are Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Ernie Els, Annika Sorenstram, Henrik Stenson, Jerry Pate, Adam Scott and John Daly and the list is growing. Look out for Rory’s protégée Tom McKinnon who has won the Junior Honda Classic and played in the Irish Open under his support.
