Only a few hours to go now before the 2011 Walker Cup kick starts on Saturday, September 11 at Royal Aberdeen in Scotland and the excitement is rising. The popular biennial competition will see the most talented amateur golfers from the United States and Great Britain & Ireland contest in the 43rd Match.
The last time the Walker Cup was contested, at Merion Golf Club, Pennsylvania, in 2009, the USA defeated Great Britain and Ireland 16 ½ to 9 ½ – the Americans have now won the last three matches home and away. Notable USA performances came from Rickie Fowler, now professional, and his former Oklahoma State University team-mate, Peter Uihlein, who both took four points from a possible four.
