Luke Johnson of Lynn Golf Club has today been called up by England again.

The 22-year-old was selected for one of the three teams which will represent England Golf in the Nations Cup event at the Spanish amateur championship at Sherry Golf Jerez in Cadiz later this month.

Ashley Chesters of Shropshire & Herefordshire, Nick Marsh of Yorkshire and Ben Stow of Dorset make up one team; Adam Chapman of Cumbria, Jimmy Mullen of Devon and Johnson 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, February 25 to Sunday, March 1 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.

Norfolk golfer Johnson won two titles last season: the Berkhamsted Trophy and the West of England stroke play.
