US regain the Walker Cup
Sunday 08 September 2013
Great Britain and Ireland’s hopes of retaining the Walker Cup were ended last night in Southampton, New York, as the United States wrapped up victory.
Starting the final day 8-4 ahead, the Americans went into the singles 10-6 up after the morning foursomes were shared, the visitors’ Gavin Moynihan and Kevin Phelan edging out Patrick Rodgers and Jordan Niebrugge in the last match to give Europe some hope.
However, with the US needing just three-and-a half points from the 10 singles matches, they clinched victory when Nathan Smith beat Nathan Kimsey in match five.
