Williams tabbed for Walker Cup

 

The United States Golf Association (USGA) announced on Sunday that Moscow, Idaho, golfer Chris Williams has been added to the 2011 Walker Cup team.

Williams will join nine other Americans Sept. 10-11 at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club in Aberdeen, Scotland in golf’s prestigious amateur version of the Ryder Cup.

Williams stated his case to the International Team Selection Committee by winning two-thirds of the Western Swing – the Sahalee Players Championship and the Pacific Coast Amateur. He continued his red-hot play at the Western Amateur Championship where he took stroke-play medalist honors by a three-stroke margin. Williams will be a junior this fall at the University of Washington.
