Robert Burlison and Bobby Keeble, both members of England's Under 18 squad, will represent England Golf in the Kenako South African World Juniors at Kingswood Golf Club in George on 3 rd - 7 th March.

Burlison, 17, (Oxley Park, Staffordshire) and Keeble, 17, (Abridge, Essex) will also enjoy some warm weather training prior to the event and will also compete in the one-day Western Province under-23 Stroke Play Championship over 36 holes at Durbanville Golf Club on 10 th March.

Both players became boy caps in last year's Boys Home Internationals, Burlison having stepped up from being an under 16 international for the previous two years.

Burlison (image copyright Tom Ward Sport Photography), a former English Schools under 16 champion, has finished runner-up in the South of England Boys Open for the past two years and was equal seventh in the Boys County Champions event at Woodhall Spa in 2012.

Apart from being selected for last year's Boys Home Internationals, he has represented England Golf in the European Young Masters in Hungary, the Italian Under 16 Championship, and the Junior Players' Championship in Florida.

Keeble had been ‘knocking on the door' in several events before coming close to winning last year's Carris Trophy (English Under 18 Championship) at Deal, losing to Patrick Kelly in a playoff, a performance that earned him his Boys Home Internationals call.

He shared second spot with Burlison in the South of England Boys last year and accompanied him to the Junior Players' Championship in America. Keeble also finished third in the Daily Telegraph Junior Championship and finished fifth on the Titleist/FootJoy England Golf Boys Order of Merit for 2012.

The Kenako event, which also embraces a girls' competition, is played over 54 holes of stroke play and is part of the World Junior Golf Series
