U.S. Rallies to Win 47th Walker Cup

Cole Hammer had the shortest match and the Americans made quick work of Great Britain & Ireland to win eight of 10 singles matches Sunday as they rallied for a 15½-10½ victory in the Walker Cup.

After being left out in the morning, world No 1 Cole Hammer was sent out first by Crosby against Fitzpatrick while there was also a first taste of action for Amateur champion James Sugrue against Pak.

The Americans won the amateur competition for the second straight time and now lead the series 37-9-1.

The Americans claimed the first point of the session thanks to Smalley and Wu winning their match 2&1 against Fitzpatrick and Purcell.

"This afternoon I just could not believe the amount of putts Great Britain and Ireland made in the first 45 minutes", US captain Nathaniel Crosby said. He captured a 2-and-1 victory over Conor Gough in singles play, helping team U.S. win eight of 10 singles matches.

Scott produced birdies on the 12th and 14th as he wrapped up a 4&3 victory over Wu, although at the same time John Pak was sealing a 2&1 success against Walker.

John Augenstein of Owensboro, Ky., scored the winning point with a 4-and-3 victory over Thomas Plumb of England.

Detroit Lions collapse in Week 1: Here are 5 bright spots
It's the second straight year a game ended in a tie in the first week after the Browns and Steelers did the same thing last year. The Lions will return home to take on the Los Angeles Chargers (1-0), who just beat the Andrew Luck-less Colts, 30-24.

Gough and Harry Hall edged Stewart Hagestad and Bhatia Akshay 2 and 1, and Gough beat Isaiah Salinda 2 up in singles. We came from behind to get one and they came from behind to get a halve.

But like rankings, history can generally be disregarded, as well.

The rest was all US red.

One thing that can't be ignored is form.

"They were always going to come back at us at some point but we were playing good golf all day and were both confident in each other's abilities". We were pretty lucky to be 5-3 down when it looked like we could be 6-2 or even 7-1-down.

If the USA wants to win Sunday afternoon, it's going to need better play out of two of its best players, Hammer and Fisk, who are each now 0-2 after sitting the opening session. "We played really steady after eight, I have a lot of trust in this guy and he's been a great partner the past couple of days".

As for the presence of his brother, Fitzpatrick added: "I saw him sneak under the ropes on one of the tees and I was tempted to go and tell him to get back with everyone else but I let him off with that one".
