Spider Miller's US Team beat GB&I 19-7 with Maverick McNealy, Collin Monikawa and Doug Ghim all recording 100% records
USA Dominate GB&I To Win Walker Cup
The Walker Cup is staying Stateside after the USA rampaged GB&I at Los Angeles Country Club.
The Americans matched their record points tally of 19 back in 1993.
The sides were level after the first foursomes session at 2-2 but the US led at the halfway mark by 8-4 after a solid singles session.
The score was 11-5 by Sunday’s afternoon singles which the USA won to reach the final score of 19-7.
David Boote was the only Brit to win a singles match on Sunday, beating US Amateur Champion Doc Redman.
Robert MacIntyre halved his match with Cameron Champ.
Highlights from the Sunday singles:
The US trio of Maverick McNealy, Colin Monikawa and Doug Ghim each won four points out of a possible four to set a new record.
USA had previously seen two players go 4-0 in three different Walker Cups, but never three players in the same match.
GB&I have had two players go 4-0 in the same match in 1999, when Luke Donald and Paul Casey each posted 100% records.
The USA now leads by 36-9-1 from 46 Walker Cup matches.
They look to regain the Walker Cup next time in September 2019 at Royal Liverpool Golf Club.
