Two Boston-area golfers will be on international duty today.

Jordan Wrisdale and Billy Spooner will represent England in the ST8TS TGH Dutch Junior Open at Toxandria Golf Club in the Netherlands.

Boston Golf Club’s Jordan, 19, has just helped Lincolnshire to reach county finals with rounds of 68, 64 at qualifying.

He was fifth in the South East of England links championship and also shared the first round lead in the Brabazon Trophy.

Billy, from Wyberton, is currently a Woodhall Spa GC member.

He first represented England in 2012 and contributed to last year’s successful under 16 campaign against the other home nations.

He has had top 10 finishes in this year’s Fairhaven Trophies and the South East of England links championship.

The event runs from today (Wednesday) until Saturday and is contested by players aged under 21.
