DAVIS STARS AS AUSTRALIA WIN AMATEUR WORLD TITLE
Australia completed a runaway victory in the World Amateur Team Championship, beating England by 19 strokes and sweeping the top two individual spots. Australia won the Eisenhower Trophy for the fourth time, following victories in the biennial event in 1958, 1966 and 1996. “It’s great for the game of golf back home,” said Australian captain Matt Cutler. “It started two years ago when the women won the Espirito Santo (Trophy). “We got a taste of competing and winning internationally. They executed the plan perfectly this week.” Cameron Davis closed with a 3-under 68 at Mayakoba El Camaleon to beat teammate Curtis Luck by two strokes for the individual title. Australia tied the team mark set by the United States in 2014 and had the third-largest winning margin in the history of the event. England finished second, Austria finished in third place while Ireland claimed fifth.
