ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. – The Jones Cup was created 10 years ago to serve as a Walker Cup preview. With that said, now is a good time to kick off the Walker Cup watch list. This isn’t a ranking of the hottest players. The Walker Cup team is selected based on performance over the past two years (with an emphasis on results in USGA events). Ten players will represent the United States in Scotland in September.
