South Carolina will be represented in the Walker Cup for the first time in 10 years when the event is played Sept. 7-8 at National Golf Links of America in Southampton, N.Y.
Former Furman star Todd White, now a history teacher at Hilton Head High School, was selected earlier this week to the team which will compete against a team from Great Britain-Ireland.
White, 45, is originally from the Spartanburg area. He has competed in four U.S. Amateurs, two U.S. Mid-Amateurs and one U.S. Open. White was the 2010 and 2012 South Carolina Golf Association player of the year.
The last time a player from South Carolina made the Walker Cup team was 2007 when Clemson’s Kyle Stanley and Coastal Carolina’s Dustin Johnson were part of the winning U.S. team. In 2003 Bill Haas of Greer, then a star at Wake Forest and now a PGA Tour golfer, was picked. Former Clemson golfer Lucas Glover competed in the 2001 Walker Cup and former Tiger Jonathan Byrd played in the 1991 Walker Cup.
