The Golf Foundation is making an extra push to get more juniors into golf this week.

As this week was originally meant to hold the 149th Open Championship, the charity has launched the #GolfisOpenforKids campaign to entertain families at home with fun competitions, activities and coaching sessions.

The Golf Foundation would normally be offering similar such activities in a special pop up at the Major championship, so instead it is thinking of other ways it can attract more boys and girls into golf.

HSBC Ambassador and legendary tennis star Tim Henman will be supporting the campaign by visiting his local HSBC Golf Roots Centre at Frilford Heath Golf Club on Saturday 18 July, and joining in with a junior coaching session.

Tim Henman said:

“I’m delighted to be involved in this campaign and to help highlight the great work that HSBC does with the Golf Foundation through HSBC Golf Roots, an initiative that gives half a million children the opportunity to try the game each year. Golf has so many health and well-being benefits and helps teach mental resilience and life skills to young people who take up the game. These life skills are now more important than ever and I’m thrilled to add my support to the #GolfisOpenforKids campaign.”

Meanwhile, kids from across the country are encouraged to create their own adventure golf courses at home and share them on social media using the hashtag #GolfisOpenforKids for the chance to win a prize.

Plus, there’s also a chance to win a behind the ropes experience on the Titleist Tour Truck at The Open 2021 for one adult and one child.

All you have to do is donate £3 to the Golf Foundation and answer the following question: Who was the winner of The Open 2019 and how many birdies did he have in his final round?
