Sandy Scott Named In Ten-Man Walker Cup Team

Posted on 30/03/2021

Scotland’s Sandy Scott is one of ten players selected to represent Great Britain and Ireland in the 48th Walker Cup match at Seminole, Florida on Saturday, 8 and Sunday, 9 May.  

The GB&I team, captained by Scotland’s Stuart Wilson, is bidding to win back the famous trophy after the USA secured a 15½-10½ victory at Royal Liverpool two years ago, marking the first away win in the match since 2007 when the USA prevailed at Royal County Down. 

Stuart Wilson, GB&I captain, said, “The Walker Cup is the pinnacle of the amateur game for these players and we are delighted that they will have the opportunity to compete against their counterparts from the USA at Seminole. It gives them the opportunity to display their exceptional talent and will provide a lifetime of memories. After a difficult year with the Covid-19 pandemic, we are all looking forward to the match this year and I know the team will be doing their very best to win back the Walker Cup.”
