The burgeoning Adidas Junior 6s, the brainchild of Korn Ferry Tour winner and commentator Ewan Porter, has unveiled its schedule for this year. And the country’s best junior golfers will tread the fairways of some of our greatest courses.
Commencing next month at Royal Sydney, the newly renamed Adidas Junior 6s Tour will include 10 tournaments throughout the year, played across three states, with the series to conclude at Australia’s No.1 course, Royal Melbourne in October.
As was the case in 2020, numerous professional tournament exemptions will be on offer to the boys and girls teeing it up in the series, as well as four sponsorships from title sponsor Adidas Golf.
The list of venues is an impressive one, with every layout featured on the schedule having hosted a PGA Tour of Australasia event and a total of 48 Australian Opens, 23 Vic Opens, 22 Australian PGA Championships, 17 NSW Opens, 10 Queensland Opens, five World Cups and three Presidents Cups staged across the host sites.
