Walker Cup without mid-amateurs would alter captaincy

Really great article on mid-amateurs on the Walker Cup team (“Is there still a place for mid-amateurs in Walker Cup?” April 20,

One other key element that might be missed is the selection process for Walker Cup captain. The USGA always has made the selection from former Walker Cuppers. If you don’t have any mid-ams on the team, where is the pool of potential captains then going to come from years from now?
