TALENTED young golfers from all over the world will do battle today at the conclusion of the 20th Faldo Series Grand Final at Stoke by Nayland Golf Club.

Six-time Major champion Sir Nick Faldo has been watching on with keen interest and offering insight, as some of the world’s best young amateurs compete.
