Manila to host FCG Callaway World Championship 2020 qualifier
MANILA (Philippines News Agency) — DreamBig Events, the sports event company that will bring world-class golf coaches to Asia and the Philippines for the first time this December, has announced the holding of the first-ever Future Champions Golf (FCG) Tournament in the country just ahead of the Gold Series Golf Camp.
Called the FCG-DreamBig Golf Challenger Series, the tournament is open to all junior golfers aged 12 to 18 years old and will be held at Orchard Golf and Country Club, Manila from December 16 to 17.
The FCG-DreamBig Tournament in Manila is a qualifier for the FCG Callaway World Championship. The Winner of each age division will qualify for direct entry to the FCG Callaway World Junior Golf Championship 2020 that will take place at Rancho Mirage, California from July 13 to 15.
Junior golfers in Manila are invited to join both or either of the Junior Golf Tournament and the Gold Series Golf Camp.
Coaches from the top NCAA Division 1 universities – UCLA (University of California – Los Angeles), Columbia University and UC Berkeley –will be in town to oversee the tournament and conduct the camps for junior golfers to fully hone their skills.
“We decided to offer the FCG Junior Golf tournament in order to offer a complete package to junior golfers in this part of the world. The tournament is necessary because playing in competition conditions requires a completely different mindset from training. Tournaments test both physical and mental agility and ability – which is critical in the development of an athlete” said Akshay Maliwal, Founder and CEO of DreamBig Events.
The FCG tournament, Maliwal said, affords talented junior golfers here the rare chance of qualifying in the Philippines instead of having to travel to the US.
Maliwal said FCG hosts some of the world’s largest and most exciting junior golf tournaments. Both the camp and the tournament provide a positive fun environment that allows the players to take their game to the highest level through professionally run competition and highest-quality golf instruction.
The goal of both the junior golf camp and the tournament is to help young golfers get to the collegiate level and get them exposed to college coaches in the US. DreamBig and FCG attract more college coaches than most other junior golf tours. (PR)
