Representatives of the US national team traditionally outplay their opponents from Britain in separate matches, and the current rally was no exception to this rule. This is the practice of past Walker Cup draws. By the last day of the competition, the Americans climbed one point behind the British, and they had to score six points in ten matches.
The guest team confidently led from the very beginning, allowing rivals to win only two matches and securing the long-awaited triumph. Recall that the last time the US team won the Walker Cup twelve years ago when Dustin Johnson, Ricky Fowler, Billy Horschel and Webb Simpson played on this amateur team.
«I just let them showcase my game», - said American coach Nathaniel Crosby. - These guys are very talented and believe in themselves. As a result, their talent played a role. I am very happy for them».
Five members of the American team that won the Royal Liverpool Golf Club immediately announced their transition to the pros. Brandon Wu, Fisk Stephen Fisk, Alex Smalley, Isaiah Salinda and 17-year-old Akshay Bhatia decided to leave the ranks of lovers. Among the representatives of the British team this initiative was supported only by the Scot Ewan Walker and the Englishman Tom Sloman.
