Bowood's Smith called up by England
BOWOOD golfer Jordan Smith has been called up by England for the upcoming clash with France.
Smith, who represented England for the first time in the 2012 Home Internationals at Glasgow Gailes, is part of a nine-man squad sent out to Fontainebleu looking to go one better than the last time this match was held on French soil, when England lost 13-11 at Chantilly in 2010.
Over the course of the past two years, Smith has reached the semi-finals of the English Amateur and was a member of Wiltshire’s winning team in the County Championship. Last year he was a quarter finalist in the Spanish Amateur, won the Brabazon Trophy at Formby and was a member of the GB&I Walker Cup team.
This year he has won the Selborne and Hampshire Salvers.
SQUAD: Harry Casey (Enfield, Middlesex), Ashley Chesters (Hawkstone Park, Shropshire & Herefordshire), Ryan Evans (Wellingborough, Northamptonshire), Paul Howard (Southport & Ainsdale, Lancashire), Nick Marsh (Huddersfield, Yorkshire), Jimmy Mullen (Royal North Devon), Michael Saunders (Dartford, Kent), Jordan Smith (Bowood G&CC, Wiltshire), and Toby Tree (Golf at Goodwood, Sussex).
