Four Scottish players are set to tee it up across the pond next week following an invitation from golfing great Tom Watson. Having won four of his five Open Championships in Scotland, the eight-time Major Champion made a special request for his team at this year’s Major Champions Invitational to come from Scotland.
Evanna Hynd (Lundin Golf Club), Eilidh Henderson (Loretto School Golf Club), Cormac Sharpe (Blairgowrie Golf Club) and Cameron Adam (Royal Burgess Golfing Society of Edinburgh) will all tee it up at the Invitational which will take place in Florida from 4 – 8 March.
Created by six-time major champion, Sir Nick Faldo, the tournament allows major champions the opportunity to mentor and inspire the next generation of golfers while giving back to the game. With costs for Scottish players being fully funded by the organisers, the tournament will provide Scottish talent with an excellent opportunity to gain valuable experience ahead of the 2019 season.
Watson is joined by the likes of Jordan Spieth, Jack Nicklaus, Michelle Wie and Brooks Koepka in a first-class line-up at Bella Collina in Montverde, Florida.
Performance Director at Scottish Golf, Clare Queen said: “We would first of all like to thank Sir Nick Faldo and Tom Watson for the opportunity to send four players from our male and female teams to play in the Invitational. The tournament was a great success last year, providing players with an excellent week of golf and education and our players this year are really looking forward to competing.”
