Palmer’s Midland Open victory came at Sherwood Forest and followed solid finishes in the Lagonda Trophy and the Midland Qualifying. Jason Palmer was the 2005 VW Masters Champion and made regular appearances in Golf Monthly that year.

Keenan, 23, has also tasted success recently with victory in the Berkshire Trophy. Having graduated from the University of Texas last year, the Sunningdale golfer is enjoying a successful season with four top ten finishes prior to his Berkshire victory.

Hemstock, 24, a former Devon Champion, is a member of the England A Squad who is also hitting the high spots this year. He finished runner-up in the Duncan Putter, seventh in the Lagonda Trophy and reached the last 32 of the Spanish Amateur.
