WAYNE, PA — BlueGolf, the industry leader for innovative systems for golf, and the Faldo Series, a premier global junior golf tour, have teamed up to provide a host of services to 30-plus Championships across Europe and Asia.
In its 26 years, the Faldo Series is the only junior global golf tournament in the world and is viewed as a stepping stone to playing the game at the highest levels. More than 5,000 boys and girls compete annually in the Series, producing notable alumni such as Rory McIlroy, Tyrrell Hatton, Yani Tseng, and many more.
“We are very excited to work with BlueGolf to further enhance the overall experience for all of our players, parents and fans,” said Tournament Director Matthew Faldo. “The BlueGolf team has been great to work with, and we have been thrilled at how seamless the transition has been. We know that players can’t wait to take advantage of BlueGolf’s advanced features, including the Live Scoring App, upgraded leaderboards and enhanced player profiles.”
BlueGolf’s industry-leading Live Scoring App will power each of the Faldo Series tournaments this year. Live Scoring debuted at the recent Faldo Series England Championship and at the Faldo Series Scotland Championship. In addition to entering scores on their mobile device, players accessed hole locations, live GPS yardages, local rules, and an aerial view of each hole. Players, along with family and friends, could follow all the action live throughout the event.
“We look forward to a successful partnership with Sir Nick Faldo and the Faldo Series for many years to come,” said BlueGolf CEO Ed Hughes. “Not only do we share a passion for elevating the Faldo Series tournament experience, but for continuing to positively impact the entire junior golf landscape, as well.”
The Faldo Series continues at the Faldo Series Latvia Championship, June 14th-16th at Jurmala Golf Club in Latvia. Download BlueGolf’s Junior Golf App for up-to-the-minute scores, results, and more.
