ORLANDO, F.L. (February 2019) – World Golf Hall of Fame member Sir Nick Faldo (@NickFaldo006) announced the return of the Major Champions Invitational, scheduled for March 6 – 8 at Bella Collina in Montverde, Florida. For the inaugural event in 2018, major champions from across the world hand-picked male and female junior golfers to complete their four-person team.

This year, the Major Champions Invitational will host 18 teams of international junior golfers and each team will be supported by major champions like Jack Nicklaus, Brooks Koepka, and Annika Sorenstam. The event will again provide the top-tier juniors a competition experience unlike any other.

“I look forward to bringing the best junior golfers in the world together and to continue to grow the game” said Faldo, host of the Major Champions Invitational. “Along with the major champions involved with the tournament, we are able to give the next generation of golfers a platform to compete at an internationally covered event.”

Last year, Tom McKibbin (@tommckibbin8) from Northern Ireland, and Cory Lopez from Mexico, finished first in the men’s and women’s competition, respectively, at the inaugural event.
