Walker Team SGA Amateurs of Month

In an unprecedented move in the three-year history of what was created as an individual honor, captain Bob Lewis and his entire U.S. Walker Cup team have been named National Amateur of the Month for August by the Southern Golf Association.
The unusual step was taken to salute the team for its recent victory over the British/Irish team in the Walker Cup matches at Chicago Golf Club. The victory, a true team triumph, broke the U.S. string of three straight losses in the storied, biennial Walker Cup competition.
Award certificates will go to Lewis and team members Jeff Overton, Michael Putnam, Nicholas Thompson, Anthony Kim, Lee Williams, Kyle Reifers, John Holmes, Bill Hurley, Matt Every and Brian Harman.
