Four of the 10 amateurs who will comprise the 2011 U.S. Walker Cup team were announced by the U.S. Golf Association Sunday. Patrick Cantlay, 19; Harris English, 22; Russell Henley, 22; and Peter Uihlein, 21, will represent the United States in the matches to be played Sept. 10-11 at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club in Aberdeen, Scotland.
Cantlay, a freshman from UCLA, is the reigning NCAA Player of the Year. He has played in four PGA Tour events this season, finishing inside the top 25 on each occasion, including a T-21 at the U.S. Open.
English and Henley are both from the University of Georgia and have each won on the Nationwide Tour this year. Uihlein is the 2010 U.S. Amateur champion.
The remainder of the team that will compete against 10 amateurs representing Great Britain and Ireland will be named later this summer.
Staked to a big lead heading into singles, the U.S. turned in a dominating performance at the Palmer Cup, winning 20.5-9.5. Read More
