Welcome to 2013 Walker Cup
The 2013 Walker Cup will be contested September 6-8, 2013 at the National Golf Links of America, located in Southampton, NY. National Golf Links of America was opened in 1909 and designed by renowned golf course architect Charles Blair Macdonald who presided over the development of the course over its first 30 years. Macdonald's tenure included the initial installment of the Walker Cup Match in 1922. Led by captain William C. Fownes Jr., the United States won the inaugural Match, 8-4. National Golf Links of America was the home club of George Herbert Walker, USGA President in 1920 when the plan for the event was conceived and the man for whom the trophy is named.
The Walker Cup Match is contested by male amateur players - one team from the United States and one team from Great Britain/Ireland - every two years, alternately in the U.S. and Great Britain/Ireland. The teams consist of not more than 10 players and a captain. The United States leads the all-time Walker Cup series with a record of 34-8-1.
