Young Zamboangeña bags 2nd Runner Up Trophy in Faldo Series

PDFPrintE-mail

San Pedro, Laguna -- Local girl Kristine Nicole Fleetwood finished third in her division during the recent Fifth Faldo Series Philippines Championship held in TAT Filipinas Golf and Country Club last April 24-26 which is also the opening event of the 2012/2013 Faldo Series Asia season.

Nicole's win came in as a surprise since the Faldo competition was her mere second try at golf after having placed sixth in the girl's division Class D of the national qualifying tournament for the Junior World Championship held at the Manila Southwoods Golf and Country Club the previous week. She is new at the great game of golf but is fortunate to have been vigorously trained by Zamboanga Golf and Country Club Pro Mark Fernando coupled with an early exposure from her mother Ms Jessica Ignacio who has been acing golf tournaments in Malaysia and the support and encouragement of her father Dewey G. Fleetwood.

Young players aged 12 to 21 competed in more than 54 holes to qualify for the Faldo Series Asia Grand Finals in China. Kristine Nicole, who is 9 year-old, was pitted against veteran young golfers in Class D, the youngest among the five age categories in the tournament.

Faldo Series named after its creator, the renowned golfer Sir Nick Faldo, was established in 1996 to provide better opportunity to young people through golf and to grow the next generation of champion golfers. There are more than 7,000 participants contending in 38 tournaments taking place in 28 countries throughout the world. Faldo graduates include big names in golf like Rory McIlroy, Nick Dougherty, Melissa Reid and Yani Tseng.

Nicole considers the 2nd Runner Up win as the biggest achievement yet in her young life and would like to bring greater honor to the City when she joins the Sixth Faldo Series next year.
