Faldo Event Series

A male golf student stands in front of signage from the Faldo Series Grand Finale. In his hands he is holding a trophy in the shape of a sailboat.

3 IJGA students qualified for the Europe Final of the Faldo Series at the Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting & Golf Club in Abu Dhabi in November 2022. Ting-Wei “Tim” Chang was one of the three who played, and he finished the weekend as a Champion. Tim, a high school junior age 16 at the time, entered a very strong amateur field with much older and experienced players but that did not stop him. He had an opening round of 6 under 64, and then backed it up with another 64 and a final day round of 69, 197 total!
