The Walker Cup will be contended Saturday and Sunday at Seminole Golf Club. In case you’re not familiar, the Walker Cup is the amateur version of the Ryder Cup (which is for professional golfers). And in case you’re not familiar with the Ryder Cup, it is a biennial competition between a team of golfers from the United States versus a team from Great Britain and Ireland (now it includes all of Europe). The Walker Cup still pits the US against GB&I and has since the 1930s.
It is a prestigious thing to be named to the team, and Davis Thompson, senior golfer at UGA, has done just that.
