Sir Nick Faldo, Founder of the Faldo Series, said:
“It’s amazing to be back, especially with such great enthusiasm from our players to get back and play competitive golf. Given the circumstances we’ve experienced this year, the Series is proud to be able host events again and with our most competitive fields and record numbers, it is very promising for the future of the game.
“Brocket Hall always delivers a fantastic experience for the Series players, and to be back here and launching the start of the Faldo Series is pretty special. This event will always be remembered for very different reasons, in particular as it marks our biggest ever field at an event and we can’t wait to see some great golf unfold over the coming days.”
