USA cruise to Walker Cup win over GB& Ireland

On Sunday, Morikawa beat British Amateur champion Harry Ellis 2 and 1 to cap his weekend.

"I was getting a little behind the eight ball there on about 13 and I told myself to just stay patient, maybe he'll make a little mistake and I can capitalize and I can throw some birdies in there, which was what I was able to do".

England's Jack Singh Brar won three points from four games for GB&I.

"It's something special and you can't really explain what it is", Morikawa said.

GB&I won the opening foursomes session, 3-1, two years ago at Royal Lytham.

Norman Xiong, at 18 the youngest player in the competition, came painfully close to also going 4-0 before halving his match with Scott Gregory.

With the match tied at 2-2 heading into Saturday at Los Angeles Country Club, the USA team won eight out of 12 clashes, allowing them to clinch victory early on Sunday.

Ghim, of Arlington Heights, Illinois, beat Matthew Jordan 3 and 1 in Sunday's singles.

That sinking feeling. If only they could turn back the clock

"I've never really gone undefeated in one of these team events, and just to have some momentum to know that I can do it against these guys, these guys are the best players around the country and the entire world, really".

However, Thornberry got the Americans going in the afternoon singles play with a dominating 6-and-5 victory over Paul McBride.

It took an 11-5 lead into Sunday's singles and deftly completed its task, winning eight of 10 matches, to avenge a seven-point loss for US captain Spider Miller and one of his players, Maverick McNealy, in 2015.

Jack Singh Brar - The Englishman won three out of four points, eventually losing to Masters low-amateur Stewart Hagestad.

"I'm so proud of all the players", said the 67-year-old Miller, a two-time U.S. Mid-Amateur champion who said the 2017 Walker Cup would be his swan song in amateur golf.

"I couldn't be more proud of these guys", US captain Spider Miller said. "I'm so glad we could win this for our team, win this for Captain [Spider] Miller, and win this for the country". "The home team has had a huge advantage in the Walker Cups the last 20 years", he said.

Britain and Ireland coach Andrew Ingram said the Americans were "superb all week". And it is just wonderful for these guys to play at the very top of amateur golf, it's great for their career. Moments later Doug Ghim, who lost the last two holes in the final of the US Amateur teammate Doc Redman, also finished with his fourth victory of the weekend. We couldn't get going.
