U.S. fight back in style to win Walker Cup

USA captain Nathaniel Crosby congratulates his players after their comeback win

After lunch, Fitzpatrick, who was being watched by his brother Matt, the European Ryder Cup player, rallied from being two-down after three holes to World No. 1 Cole Hammer, who was rested for the foursomes this morning, to win the first singles match of the afternoon by two holes.

After the four morning foursomes were shared, the home side won five of the eight afternoon singles for a 7-5 lead in the two-day biennial contest against America.

Almost 11,000 fans flocked to Hoylake over the two-day match which ended with the US winning the Walker Cup away from home for the first time since 2007 at Royal County Down.

It was left to Tom Sloman to salvage some pride for the home side and he delivered GB&I's second point of the singles by beating Steven Frisk by two holes to leave the final score at 15½-10½.

After Isaiah Salinda triumphed by two holes against Alex Fitzpatrick, the two sides were level at 9½-9½, before Stewart Hagestad, who was a member of the winning American team two years ago, nudged his side in front after dominating against Harry Hall to win 5&3.

"Leading off, putting that first point on the board for the day was important", Wu said.

Any hopes of a fightback for GB&I were extinguished when John Augenstein defeated Thomas Plumb 4&3 to clinch the winning point and leave the US in an unassailable position at 13½-9½.

Fitzpatrick and Purcell raced four up after eight holes and were still ahead by the same margin with six to play, but lost the 13th to a birdie and then bogeyed the 15th to see their lead cut in half.

Augenstein, Pak and Wu won for the United States.

Cole Hammer produced the best result of the day as he beat Ireland's Connor Purcell 6&5, and just a couple of groups later John Augenstein clinched the crucial point with a 4&3 victory over Thomas Plumb.

"Obviously the boys are disappointed", said GB&I captain Craig Watson.

"This afternoon I just could not believe the amount of putts Great Britain and Ireland made in the first 45 minutes", USA captain Nathaniel Crosby said.

The Englishmen, who estimate they've played more than 20 foursomes matches together in competition, birdied the opening hole and dropped three more birdie putts on the highly-ranked Americans, including a bomb at the par-3 11th that kept them 3 up. "I'm proud of all of them". Norman Xiong (3-0-1) also didn't lose a match.
