 NOTES:
      The Walker Cup Match began in the wake of World War I and it came
 together following a series of meetings with the Royal and Ancient Golf Club,
 whose purpose was largely to look at modifying the Rules of the game. As part
 of the meeting, an international team competition was discussed, much like
 what was already taking place between the United States and Canada, in 1919
 and 1920. Among those attending the meeting at the R&A was George Herbert
 Walker, USGA President in 1920. The idea of an amateur team competition
 appealed to Walker and he soon presented a plan and offered to donate a
 trophy. When the press dubbed the trophy the Walker Cup, the name stuck.
 The first Walker Cup Match was held in 1922 at the National Golf Links of
 America in Southampton, N.Y. Led by captain (coach) William C. Fownes, Jr.,
 the United States won the inaugural Match, 8-4. The Walker Cup Match consists
 of 16 singles and eight foursomes (alternate shot) matches. The USA leads the
 overall series against Great Britain and Ireland, 35-8-1.
