The Faldo Series aims to help reach more juniors around the world, by introducing them to the game through grassroots initiatives and helping them to develop the skills and attitudes needed to become a professional golfer. It also aids the development of golf by staging events in less-established golfing-nations and using Sir Nick, who often attends many of the Faldo Series events and plays a part watching many of the juniors in action.
