English woman’s champion Hannah Barwood and EWGA squad player Abbey Gittings are heading for Brazil this weekend to play in the grand final of the Faldo Series.
They’re among 80 finalists from over 30 Faldo Series tournaments in the UK, Europe and South America who have been invited to the Costa do Sauipe Golf Resort on the northern coast of Brazil.
Hannah, 18, plays at Knowle in Gloucestershire. She’s an England international and is a member of the English Women’s Golf Association’s Performance squad.
Abbey, 18, is the Warwickshire ladies’ and girls’ champion and plays at Walmley. She is a member of EWGA’s Select Midlands squad.
Other girls who qualified through the UK regional finals are: Jenna Birch (Royal Lytham), Miranda Brain (Gog Magog), Megan Burgess (Cavendish), Raffi Dyer (Hayling), Tiffany Hewetson (East Brighton), Gillian Monteith (Dunskey).
Nick Faldo will host the grand final and the six-times Major winner commented: “This is our biggest grand final to date, with more competitors from more countries throughout the world than ever before and I’m thrilled to be offering these young golfers a tournament of truly global proportions.”
