Despite many and varied challenges, 2020 saw the exponential rise in popularity of the Adidas Junior 6s within Australia.
Introducing a unique points system throughout the qualifying series saw players rewarded for season-long consistency. Add in the substantial amount of professional tournament exemptions on offer for both sexes (nine), and this series rapidly became the greatest pathway to professional golf worldwide.
In 2021, the Adidas Junior 6s will again be expanding, with plans in place to include international events. The full schedule will be announced early in the new year.
