GB&I squad and more wrapping up

The R&A selectors have nominated what they call an Initial GB&I squad for the St Andrews Trophy. Seen through the eyes of English golf supporters it is a pretty good squad. Eight out of the 16 players in the squad are English which could be an indication of what the team might look like. There is still a lot of golf to play though before the team is picked, and of course even more before it is time to think about the Walker Cup 2009. The squad includes the following English players: 

Andrew Cooley – Chobham
Matthew Haines – Rochester & Cobham Park
Sam Hutsby – Liphook
Chris Paisley – Stocksfield
Eddie Pepperell – Drayton Park
Steven Uzzell – Hornsea
Dale Whitnell – Five Lakes
Chris Wood – Long Ashton

My apologies to Gary King for not mentioning his outstanding win in the Skandia Junior Openin my Sunday wrap up. Must be because he won in Sweden… Gary’s 68 on the last day was in a league of its own and to win by 6 shots is pretty impressive.
