Sunday's Walker Cup pairings look familiar
SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. On Saturday, the morning foursomes were won by GB&I, while the afternoon singles matches were dominated by the U.S., so Sunday could set up to be a runaway or a comeback for the ages.
In Saturday’s morning foursomes, the two mid-amateurs for Team USA went 0-2. But because Justin Thomas is out with a back injury, captain Jim Holtgrieve has to play one of the two. Todd White and Michael Weaver will team up again in the morning.
GB&I will go with the same pairings in the same order from Saturday’s play for the morning session.
In the afternoon, GB&I’s Neil Raymond, Matt Fitzpatrick and Gavin Moynihan will take on the same opponents they faced Saturday – Bobby Wyatt, Michael Weaver and Patrick Rodgers, respectively.
