Royal Liverpool to host Walker Cup in 2019

14th May 2013

Categories: News

From Liverpool Echo

Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Wirral will mark its 150th anniversary by staging the prestigious Walker Cup in 2019.

The biennial match brings together the top amateurs from Great Britain and Ireland to play their counterparts from the USA and has featured players like Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy, who went on to make their mark on professional golf's world stage, in the past.

The famous links at Hoylake was the venue for a match between the USA and Great Britain in 1921 which paved the way for the first official Walker Cup match at the National Golf Links of America in Southampton, New York, the following year.

The ten-man team event was last held at Hoylake in 1983 when the USA side, led by captain Jay Sigel, overcame Charlie Green’s GB&I team with a 13 ½ -10 ½ victory.


The Open Championship will return to Hoylake for the 12th time next year when Tiger Woods will be looking for a repeat of his 2006 victory.
