Faldo Series tees off in Scotland

2014 06 Panmure

Some of the world’s most promising young stars have travelled to Panmure Golf Club today for the Faldo Series' fourth UK Championship of the season.


A field of 87 boys and six girls will compete in Angus over the next three days to be crowned the Scottish champion.

“There is a lot to play for in our 2014 Scotland Championship, with World Amateur Golf Ranking and Scottish Hydro Boys’ Order of Merit points on offer,” said Sir Nick Faldo.

“Panmure provides an excellent test for the players. It is located in a stunning part of Scotland where I have enjoyed playing in two Open Championships at nearby Carnoustie.”

David Anderson, captain elect of Panmure Golf Club, agrees with Faldo and is proud his club is playing host to the event.

“We are delighted to welcome the Faldo Series back to Panmure for a third year and hope that the players will once again enjoy our challenging links course,” said Anderson.

In the field


Several members of the Scottish Boys’ squad are amongst the stellar field at Panmure Golf Club, where two years ago Ewan Scott of St Andrews claimed victory before going on to capture Boys’ Under-18 titles at the Faldo Series finals in Europe and Asia.

The winner of each division this week – three boys and a girl – plus the girls’ runner-up will join Faldo at the season-ending 18th Faldo Series Grand Final at The Greenbrier in the USA.


Faldo Series worldwide


Supported by The R&A, ISPS Handa, the European Tour and The Greenbrier, the 2014 Faldo Series Europe schedule features 17 tournaments in 15 countries, including three in England plus others in Abu Dhabi, Ireland, Chile, Wales, Brazil, Scotland, Czech Republic, Italy, Austria, Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Slovakia and the USA.

Established in 1996, 40 Faldo Series tournaments now take place in 30 countries worldwide with more than 7,000 golfers participating each year. Past winners include major champions Rory McIlroy and Yani Tseng.
