Kirkhill man Craig in squad to face US
Kirkhill golfer Craig Ross has been selected for the initial 19-man squad for the Great Britain and Ireland Walker Cup team to face the United States.
The 23-year-old Cambuslang man could travel to the US for the 46th Walker Cup on September 9 and 10 at Los Angeles Country Club.
Great Britain and Ireland will bid to retain the historic trophy after a record 16½ - 9½ victory over the USA in 2015.
Craig will join fellow Scots Robert MacIntyre, Craig Howie, Sandy Scott, Barry Hume and Connor Syme in the squad.
The Kirkhill member is currently in South Africa for professional and amateur events following his two rounds on the European Tour last week.
Craig played behind world No.2 Rory McIlroy in the BMW SA Open in the first tour event of the year.
Walker Cup captain Craig Watson said:“We have identified a strong group of players who are all in contention for a place on the team and we will be monitoring their performance and results over the coming season.”
