England name boys for Dutch Junior Masters

Nathan Kimsey (Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire) is one of five players, four of whom made their debuts in the recent Boys Home Internationals, who will represent the English Golf Union in the Dutch Junior Masters at Golf Club Westwoud in the Netherlands this weekend (August 28 and 29).
He will be joined on the Continent by Oliver Carr (Heswall, Cheshire), Harry Casey (Enfield, Middlesex), Curtis Griffiths (Wentworth, Surrey) and Colin Walsh (Hayling, Hampshire, Isle of Wight).
Kimsey, 17, finished runner-up in the Lincolnshire Championship then sealed his best finish to date by winning the Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters in a three-way playoff at Nizels in Kent.

Carr, 17, the Cheshire Boys Champion, preceded his debut in the Boys Home Internationals by being capped at under 16 level last year when he was also winner of the North of England under 16 Championship.

Casey, 17, finished runner-up in the England under 18 Championship for the Carris Trophy, having in 2009 won the Middlesex under 16 Championship and finished third in North of England under 16 Championship.

Griffiths, 17, an under 16 cap, has yet to be capped at boys level but has enjoyed a successful 2010 with runners-up spot in the South East Junior Championship, tied third in the Brabazon Southern Qualifier amd equal sixth in the McEvoy Trophy.

Walsh, 17, is another capped at under 16 level prior to his promotion to a boy cap. He finished third in last year’s Italian under 16 Championship and equal fifth in this year’s Carris Trophy.

The Dutch Junior Masters is played over two days, 36 holes on each with a cut after day one with another 36 holes on the final day.
