- USA trail GB&I by four points heading into singles
- Ten points are up for grabs in the session
- Team has won from behind just once in last ten matches
USA will have to battle history if they are to come from behind and win the Walker Cup in the final session at Royal Lytham and St Annes.
Only once in the last ten stagings of the Walker Cup has a team been trailing going into the final day singles and went on to lift the trophy.
Great Britain and Ireland were the last team to do so when the match was staged at Ganton Golf Club in 2003. In the other nine matches, the team leading after the Sunday morning foursomes has won the contest.
However, GB&I can’t rest on their laurels as the USA have a better record in final day singles over the years. The American side has won the final singles sessions in each of the last four matches and with stars of the amateur game including current US Amateur champion Bryson DeChambeau and world No.2 Maverick McNealy set to be unleashed, they’re sure to come out firing.
Still unbeaten, England’s Ashley Chesters will lead the way for GB&I against this year’s Open Championship Silver Medal winner Jordan Niebrugge in a match where both teams will look to set their stall out early.
The aforementioned McNealy takes on Paul Dunne, while Jimmy Mullen has the chance to put his name into the history books having won all three of his matches to this point.
USA’s elder statesman Mike McCoy faces an in-form Cormac Sharvin, Ewen Ferguson takes on the big-hitting Beau Hossler, Grant Forrest faces a rematch of yesterday’s singles tie with Scott Harvey and Gary Hurley heads into his tie with Denny Stewart having just won his first point for the team.
Bringing up the rear for GB&I are Jack McDonald, Jack Hume and Gavin Moynihan who face Lee McCoy, Robby Shelton and Bryson DeChambeau respectively.
