US stroll to Walker victory; GOLF.

THE United States claimed the Walker Cup for a third consecutive time with an emphatic 16.5-9.5 victory over Great Britain and Ireland at the Merion Golf Club in Pennsylvania.

The bi-annual amateur contest was sealed after just three of yesterday's ten singles matches when Peter Uihlein defeated Stiggy Hodgson 3&1. That gave the hosts an unassailable 13-6 advantage and ensured their non-playing captain Buddy Marucci would lift the trophy for a second consecutive occasion after he masterminded the USA's narrow success at Royal County Down Golf Club two years ago.
