Royal Golf Club included on celebrity golf circuit
Nick Faldo will bring his travelling golf roadshow to Bahrain's prestigious Royal Golf Club tournament this year.
The Nick Faldo Series Middle East Championship will take place on October 2 and 3 and is an opportunity for young golfers in the region to showcase their skills.
"I want the Faldo Series Asia to help as many young golfers as possible, so for more countries to come on board for the fourth year running is really encouraging," said the six-time Major winner.
"The enthusiasm and passion for golf is already here in Asia. Hopefully now, with the support of UBS, Mission Hills and The R&A, we can help talented golfers to gain more tournament experience and younger children to simply try the game. In the long-term I hope this will get more youngsters playing golf and more champions emerging from Asia."
Endorsed by the Asian Tour and the Asia Pacific Golf Confederation, the climax of the season will be the Grand Final in March 2010 - an R&A World Amateur Golf Ranking event which Faldo will once again host at Mission Hills in China, home of the Faldo Series Asia.
