International quartet selected for South Africa tour

Four internationals will represent England on a month-long playing tour of South Africa.

They are David Langley of BB&O, Joe Long of Gloucestershire, Billy McKenzie of Hampshire and Tom Plumb of Somerset (pictured).

They will play in the:
– African Amateur, 11-14 February, at Leopard Creek Country Club
– South African Amateur, 17-22 February, at King David Mowbray Golf Club
– South African Stroke Play, 26 February–1 March, at De Zalze Golf Club
– Cape Province Open, 4-6 March, at the Kingswood Golf Estate and George Golf Club

Langley (Castle Royle) made headlines last year when he won the qualifier for the Proudfoot Trophy at the South African Amateur in brutal conditions.

He went on to notch up a series of impressive results and to play in England’s winning team at the Men’s Home Internationals. Long (Lansdown), the runner up in the English Amateur, and Plumb (Yeovil) were fellow team members.

McKenzie (Rowlands Castle), is the Spanish Amateur champion and helped England win last year’s international against France.

McKenzie and Plumb are also on international duty this week, representing England in the South American Amateur in Chile.
