U.S. rallies to beat Great Britain & Ireland in Walker Cup

Walker Cup: United States produce superb comeback to retain trophy

The United States of America won the 47 Walker Cup match after defeating Great Britain and Ireland 15½-10½ at Royal Liverpool today.

Nathaniel Crosby's side were 7-5 down after the first day of play but responded magnificently on day two to clinch the morning foursomes 2½-1½ and the afternoon singles 8-2 to run out comfortable winners.

Crosby's team could have entered Sunday morning with an 8-4 deficit, but John Pak earned a valuable point on Saturday evening when he won the final two holes against British Amateur champion James Sugrue to come from one down to win one up.

It was no contest in the afternoon, from Hammer's 6-and-5 victory over Conor Purcell to U.S. Amateur champion Andy Ogletree's 2-and-1 victory over Conor Gough.

The U.S. team increased the series lead to 37-9-1.

Team USA won the Walker Cup for the second straight time, and the first time overseas since winning at Royal County Down in 2007. John Pak completed a flawless week.

They came from two down after three holes to defeat Alex Fitzpatrick and Conor Purcell 2&1.

They were helped by two early birdies but also an erratic display from Stewart Hagestad and Akshay Bhatia, who, in addition to a couple of concessions, were a woeful six-over-par.

John Augenstein hit back for team US with a 2&1 win over Conor Purcell taking it to 4-3 in the match overall.

But the loss of three holes in a row from the 11 proved to be pivotal as the Americans claimed their first point of the match.

Augenstein hit back for the Americans with a 2&1 win over Ireland's Conor Purcell making it 4-3 in the match overall.

Scott and Walker rescued a half point for GB&I after chasing Augenstein and Ogletree for much of their foursomes match.

Cole Hammer finally got a point with the shortest match.

Captain Craig Watson's decision to pair compatriots Scott and Walker looked promising as they birdied the third, fourth and fifth in the second game to be one up on the seventh tee.

Casey started the final round one shot behind Bernd Ritthammer and Robert MacIntyre and played bogey-free for his 14th title on the European Tour.

As they say over here, I think we were a little slow out of the paddock, but we fought hard to get back to where we were and all square going into lunch. Pak made it 3-0 for the week with a 2-and-1 victory over Euan Walker.
