England Golf names Nations Cup teams

Three teams will represent England Golf in the Nations Cup event at the Spanish amateur championship held at Sherry Golf Jerez in Cadiz later this month. Ashley Chesters of Shropshire & Herefordshire, Nick Marsh of Yorkshire and Ben Stow (pictured) of Dorset, make up one team; Adam Chapman of Cumbria, Jimmy Mullen of Devon and Luke Johnson of Norfolk combine in another; and the third is composed of Paul Kinnear of Lancashire, Joe Dean of Yorkshire and Michael Saunders of Kent.

All nine players are members of the England Golf men’s squad and all are internationals. The Spanish amateur championship takes place from Wednesday, 25 February to Sunday, 1 March and after two rounds of stroke play qualifying the leading 32 players will go forward to the match play. The Nations Cup will be played on the qualifying days when each team’s best two scores will count in both rounds.
