Teenagers Conor Gough and Thomas Plumb will represent England in the Thunderbird International in the USA.

The 54-hole tournament will be played on the Raptor Course at Grayhawk Golf Club at Scottsdale, Arizona, from 26-29 May.

Both players are members of the England Golf boys' squad.

Gough, 14, (Stoke Park, BB&O) won the 2016 English U14 championship and the Douglas Johns Trophy and was runner up in the Italian U16 open. He
tied 12th in the recent Peter McEvoy Trophy. Last year, his older brother, John, represented England in the Thunderbird International.

Plumb, 18, (Sherborne, Dorset) was an England U16 international who reached the match play stages of this season’s Spanish amateur and was fourth in the Bernard Darwin Salver. He shared 15th place in last weekend’s West of England amateur at Saunton.
