Recent Stanford grads Isaiah Salinda, who won the 2017 NCGA Amateur Match Play Championship and 2018 Pacific Coast Amateur, and Brandon Wu were named to the 2019 U.S. Walker Cup squad.
This year’s Walker Cup will tee off Sept. 7-8 at Royal Liverpool in Hoylake, England, against the best amateurs from Great Britain and Ireland. The match is played over two days with 18 singles matches and eight foursomes (alternate-shot) matches.
Team USA holds the overall series lead at 36-9-1. In the last 15 meetings since 1989, the Americans have just an 8-7 advantage.
“The USGA has assembled an extremely talented squad to represent our country in the 47th Walker Cup Match,” said Stuart Francis, USGA Championship Committee chairman via a press release. “We are looking forward to watching this group bond in the spirit of teamwork, commitment and camaraderie when they compete to defend the Walker Cup.”
