Adam Keogh ( Boston West , Lincolnshire) and Ben Loughrey ( Wrag Barn , Wiltshire) will seek to extend England's solid record in the Peruvian Amateur Championship at Lima Golf Club on 14th -17th April.

Keogh, 21, reached the semi-finals of the English Amateur at Woodhall Spa in 2008 when still a teenager and represented the English Golf Union (EGU) in the Chiberta Grand Prix last year. Also in 2009, he won the Lee Westwood Trophy at Rotherham with a closing 69.

Loughrey, 21 (photo © Tom Ward), is a former Wiltshire Junior Champion, who has been a key member of the Wiltshire team in the past three English County Championship Finals. In 2009, he won the South West Colts Championship and the North of England Youths Championship and finished runner-up in the South West Stroke Play Championship. This year, Loughrey was a member of the England team which finished runners-up in the Costa Ballena Quadrangular Tournament in Spain in January while he also qualified for the match play stages of the recent Spanish Amateur Championship but was beaten in the first round.

The format for the Peruvian Amateur is 72 holes of stroke play, both players' scores to count over all four rounds for the team event.

English players have enjoyed successes in the event. In 2005, on the first occasion the EGU sent players to Lima, Neil Chaudhuri from Leicestershire shared the individual title with Mario Maya of Venezuela after the pair finished tied, then played three holes of a sudden death playoff, only to run out of daylight.

In 2006, James Morrison from Surrey and Yorkshire's John Parry finished second in the team event while Morrison was runner-up in the individual prize. Three years ago, Jamie Abbott and James Smith finished fourth in the team competition. Last year, Adam Best from Cleveland finished tied fourth in the individual when representing an English Students team.
