Nathan Kimsey(Woodhall Spa , Lincolnshire) and Callum Shinkwin ( Moor Park , Hertfordshire), two of England's brightest young talents, will contest the Junior International at Sage Valley Golf Club in Georgia on 20th - 22nd April.

This will be the first time the EGU has sent players to this 54-hole stroke play event which attracts an international field of players under 19 years of age.

Kimsey (picture © Tom Ward), who turned 18 on 21st March, hit the headlines last summer when he won a three-way playoff for the Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters at Nizels in Kent. Runner-up in the Lincolnshire Championship, these performances earned him an England debut in the Boys Home Internationals in Scotland and he is now a member of the England Under 18 squad.

Shinkwin, 17, is the current England Boys Champion following his victory in the Carris Trophy at Woodhall Spa last summer. He also made his England debut in the 2010 Boys Home Internationals, while he was a member of the victorious Hertfordshire team in the Boys County Championship at Goswick . He is also a member of the England Under 18 squad and this will be his second trip to the United States as he represented the EGU in last year's Junior Players Championship at Sawgrass, Florida.

The 7,344 yard Sage Valley course lies just a few miles from Augusta National, home of the Masters Tournament and is a Tom Fazio design constructed through 10,000 acres of forest.
