Learning to win FCG World Series Events could be a huge step in your future goal to be a Professional Golfer

Written By: Chris Smeal

I am a firm believer if you learn how to dominate in the 15-18 Divisions throughout the year on the Future Champions Golf World Series Schedule you could become one of the next great players in professional golf and here is why:

Annual Tournament Schedule includes all the key components necessary for player development at the highest level of junior golf:

  • Challenging Golf Courses
  • Multiple Days of Competition
  • Large International Fields of Players
  • Travel and Learn to Prepare for Big Competitions
  • Play in front of College Coaches
  • Sleeping on the Lead and Coming from to Behind to Win
  • First Class Operations

Let me go into further detail on each of these key components:

  • Challenging Golf Courses
    • If you were to compete year round in the FCG World Series events you would play at La Costa Resort former home of the PGA Tour Tournament of Champions and Sandpiper Golf Club in Santa Barbara in October. The FCG National Championship is conducted at Sycuan Resort and Steele Canyon in San Diego, CA in December, Menifee Lakes CC in February, Championship Venues in Dallas, TX in March, the amazing Primm Valley Golf Club in Las Vegas in April, the Greg Norman Course at PGA West which is also annual home to the Prestige College Championship, Sycuan Resort in July, and Classic Club or the Dinah Shore Course in July for the FCG Callaway World Championship.  These courses have hosted big time championships at the amateur and professional level for years and our goal is always to identify the best player.  
    • Full Tournament Schedule including year ending must play FCG National Championship.  4 past winners are now on the PGA Tour or have earned status on the PGA Tour and compete on the
  • Multiple Days of Competition
    • All of our FCG World Series Events are either 36 or 54-Hole Nationally Ranked Competitions.
  • Large International Fields of Players
    • 3 of these FCG World Series Events annually feature over 500 junior golfers in each event.  Our largest division is typically the 15-18 Boys division that routinely sells out at 180 competitors.  
    • Some of these events have had as many as 35 countries represented at each one and the fields are getting stronger and deeper every year.  
    • Winning one of these events is no easy task and usually takes several if not upwards of 12 to 15 under par over 3 days.
  • Travel
    • With the current schedule of FCG World Series events being scattered throughout the Western USA there is a need for you to travel to events and learn how to travel, how to prepare, how to get the best information about the course, adjust to time change, etc.  
    • This is very similar to College Golf.  During the school year there is the added element of getting your schoolwork done while traveling also which is a key component to taking your game to the next level.
  • Play in front of College Coaches
    • Playing in front of College Coaches is now a routine thing on the FCG World Series Schedule.  The FCG National Championship drew in 37 College Coaches last year, the FCG International had 35 College Coaches in attendance, and the FCG Callaway World Championship had another 22 College Coaches.  It can be intimidating for some to have a College Coach watch you play but what a better way to experience some pressure!
  • Sleeping on the Lead and Coming from to Behind to Win
    • Winning out here is not easy and if you can learn to do it out here I truly feel you will become a World Class player.  These are massive events, tons of social media, news stations cover many of the events, there are World Rankings on the line, and College Coaches watching.  If you can develop a system that gets you in contention out here, have opportunities to win one or multiple events you will be gaining the KEY skills to becoming a serious player.  That is why so many of our past champions have made it already to the PGA and LPGA Tour. Why so many players from FCG are dominating the College Ranks.  This is a skill you need to learn, a process, learn how to handle sleeping on the lead or playing in the final group, or training by 3 and learning how to make a move the final day and win the Championship.
  • First Class Operations
    • We pride ourselves on offering the best junior golf experience possible with a friendly staff of passionate junior golf leaders.  Our staff is made up of PGA and LPGA Professionals, PGA Rules Officials, former junior and collegiate golfers, and all have tournament operations experience.  From setup to tear down each of our World Series events is meant to be a truly wonderful experience for all players and families and we keep getting better every event.  Click here to watch video from the 2017 FCG Callaway World Championship at Westin Mission Hills.

  1. So the only kids who can join & play are those whose parents can afford to pay. Other very capable kids have no chance to be involved since there is no scholarships available for them. That stinks. Shame on FACT.
