Rising teenage star Robin Tiger Williams from Peterborough Milton Golf Club is one of 12 England golfers who have been named by the R&A in an initial GB & Ireland squad of 26 for this year’s Walker Cup match against the USA.
The 47th Walker Cup match will be played at Royal Liverpool on September 7 and 8 with GB&I aiming to win back the trophy after losing 19-7 at the Los Angeles Country Club two years ago.
Craig Watson, GB&I captain, said, “We have selected a talented group of players who are all in contention for a place in the team to play the United States of America and will be continuing to monitor the form and results of these players over the course of the season.
“We will also be looking closely at the performances of other players who have not been included in the squad and there is still time for them to play their way into our plans ahead of the final team selection later this year.”
Williams (17) is the second youngest of the 26 players in the squad.
