Coby Carruthers (Jordan Springs) and two of his club-mates from Concord GC will fly to Vietnam on 21st April to compete in the Sir Nick Faldo Series Asia Grand Final.

Coby, Emily Leong and Michelle Bang (all from Concord GC) will be joined by Jamie Smith (Monash CC) on the trip, as the winners of their respective age categories in the qualifying tournament, which was held at Cromer GC.

The four Australians will be mentored in Vietnam by Sir Nick Faldo, attend his clinics and have one-on-one time as well. They will also compete in the 54 hole tournament ,where the winner will go to the World Final in Dubai and receive a start on the DP World Tour.

Boys and girls aged 12 to 21 compete for World Amateur Golf Ranking (WAGR) points, aiming to meet Sir Nick at the Faldo Series Asia Grand Final. The current venue in Asia is Laguna Golf Lang Co, Vietnam, a Faldo Design course. 

The Faldo Series expanded into Asia in 2006, recognising the huge potential on the Asian junior golf circuit. Helping to reach more juniors around the world, by introducing them to the game through grassroots initiatives, is at the heart of the Faldo Series’ expansion to other corners of the globe.
