The Birdies & Eagles Challenge will award players with 10 points for an Albatross, five points for an Eagle and two points for a Birdie with a £10,000 prize pool.
“We are delighted to have secured PartyPoker.com’s support for another season and I think the Birdies & Eagles challenge will be an exciting feature for the new season. We have the best young talent in the World playing on the PGA EuroPro Tour and with the aggressive play that they bring to each tournament, the competition will be fierce,” commented Eddie Hearn, PGA EPT Chief Executive.
