When the R&A today published their team for the St Andrews Trophy at the end of August 5 English (in bold below) players made the side;

The members of the team are as follows:
Wallace Booth (Comrie) – Winner of this year’s Scottish Stroke Play, and posted the best individual score in the stroke play section of this year’s European Team Championship.

Jonathan Caldwell (Clandeboye) – A member of the GB&I Walker Cup team who narrowly lost to the American team at Royal County Down last September, and played on the winning Irish teams in both the 2007 and 2008 European Team Championships.

Matthew Haines (Rochester & Cobham Park) – Consistent results this season include a victory in the Lytham Trophy and making the cut at the Estoril Open de Portugal on the European Tour in April.

Sam Hutsby (Liphook) – The 2006 Spanish Amateur champion is in consistent form this season, with good results including finishing a close second behind Chris Wood at the Welsh Open Stroke Play.

Shane Lowry (Esker Hills) – Has shot up the World Amateur Golf Ranking this year with a string of good results that have taken him to seventh in the world, making him the top-ranked player in the side. Also on the winning Irish team at the European Team Championship.

Callum Macaulay (Tulliallan) – Won the Scottish Amateur Championship at Carnoustie at the beginning of August to climb to a new high of 17th in the WAGR ranking, making him the top-ranked amateur golfer in Scotland.

Chris Paisley (Stocksfield) – Has produced a string of excellent finishes in 2008 both in US collegiate golf and back in Britain, including an appearance in the final of the English Amateur Championship last week.

Steven Uzzell (Hornsea) – Won this year’s Brabazon Trophy and recently made the cut at the Russian Open on the European Tour, eventually finishing 43rd.

Dale Whitnell (Five Lakes) – Enjoying an excellent 2008 with wins in both the Tillman Trophy and Lagonda Trophy, and finished runner-up to Matthew Haines in the Lytham Trophy.

At Royal County Down it was a good day for the English Team in the very tough conditions. England beat Scotland on the second day of the Boys’ Home Internationals, 10-5, and now face Ireland in a deciding match for the Championship tomorrow.
