The trio of Harry Hall, David Wicks and Joe Pagdin will represent England in the Jones Cup Invitational in the USA next week.

It’s a repeat performance for Hall and Wicks, who respectively finished 16th and 26th in last year’s event. They’ll be joined by Pagdin, an England boy international who is based in the USA.

The 54-hole event takes place at Ocean Forest Golf Club, Georgia, from 26-28 January and is contested by 84 top amateurs from the US and around the world. Among the other Englishmen in the field is Harry Ellis, the Amateur Champion and a Walker Cup player.

David Wicks, 24, (Nevill, Sussex) was a student at Jacksonville University, Florida, and won four times on the US college circuit. Like Hall and Ellis, he was a member of the 2017 GB&I team which took on the USA in the inter-collegiate Arnold Palmer Cup.
