Members of the winning 2015 Walker Cup team

The R&A has announced an initial 19–man squad for the Great Britain and Ireland Walker Cup team to face the United States at Los Angeles Country Club in September.

The 46th Walker Cup match will be played over the weekend of 9 – 10 September and GB&I will bid to retain the historic trophy after a record 16½ – 9½ victory over the USA at Royal Lytham & St Annes in 2015.

Craig Watson will captain the GB&I Walker Cup team for the first time, and said, “We have identified a strong group of players who are all in contention for a place on the team and we will be monitoring their performance and results over the coming season.

“We will also pay close attention to the progress and form of players who have not been included in this current squad as they also have the opportunity to play their way into contention for the team selected to play the USA in September.”
