NOTES: The World Amateur Team Championship, conducted by the International Golf Federation (formerly the World Amateur Golf Council), which comprises the national governing bodies of golf in more than 120 countries are a biennial international amateur golf competition rotated among three geographic zones: Asia-Pacific, Americas and Europe-Africa. The American team will be comprised of Steven Fox, Justin Thomas and Chris Williams. Jim Vernon is the captain.
Each team, which has two or three players, plays 18 holes of stroke play for four days. In each round, the total of the two lowest scores by players from each team constitutes the team score for the round. The four-day (72-hole) total is the team's score for the championship.
The winning team in the men's competition receives custody of the Eisenhower Trophy for the ensuing two years. Members of the winning team receive gold medals; members of the second-place team receive silver medals; and members of the third-place team receive bronze medals.
The Eisenhower Trophy was presented in 1958 for the World Amateur Team Championship by the American Friends of Golf through the United States Golf Association and The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, Scotland. It is named in honor of United States President Dwight D. Eisenhower, an avid golfer, who received WAGC delegates at the White House in 1958. The inscription reads, "To foster friendship and sportsmanship among the Peoples of the World."
In a rain-shortened event in 2010, France, behind Johann Lopez-Lazaro, Alexander Levy and Romain Wattel, defeated Denmark by four shots to capture their first World Amateur Team Championship. Played in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Lopez-Lazaro and Levy carded even-par 72s on the final day to outduel the Danes. The United States team of David Chung, Scott Langley and Peter Uihlein placed third, five shots back.
Back in 2008 and tied for the lead with the United States after two rounds, Scotland outdueled the Americans in round three by four shots and then in windy conditions lapped the field, as they cruised to a nine-shot victory over team USA and by 14 over third-place Sweden. The Scottish team of Callum Macaulay, Wallace Booth and Gavin Dear finished with a 20-under-par total of 560. Macaulay birdied five of his first nine holes on the final day en route to an even-par 72, just two shots shy of the low score of the day. Although there is no individual recognition, Rickie Fowler of the USA posted the lowest individual total of 10-under-par 280. Macaulay and Nick Taylor of Canada were two shots back. With 65 teams entered, the 2008 championship had the third-most teams in the history of the Eisenhower Trophy. The championship was held in Australia at Royal Adelaide Golf Club. At 7,215 yards/6,593 meters, Royal Adelaide was the longest course in event history
The Netherlands snapped the three-championship run by the United States in 2006, as they defeated Canada by two shots. A record 70 teams and 208 players competed. Three shots behind after the first two rounds, Netherlands, led by Will Besseling and Joost Luiten shot rounds of 66-70 and 70-67 respectively to edge the Canadians. The United States team of Chris Kirk, Trip Kuehne and Jonathan Moore finished third, three shots back. Roberto Gomez of Brazil competed in his record 12th WATC.
In 2004, the United States captured the Eisenhower Trophy for the third consecutive time, as they defeated Spain with a score of 25-under-par 407. Shortened by rain to 54 holes, the American team of Ryan Moore, Lee Williams and Spencer Levin led the U.S. to its 13th title in this event. The USA, the only nation to finish in the top 10 in all 26 previous Eisenhower Trophy competitions, finished nine strokes ahead of silver medalist Spain at 416 and 10 strokes clear of bronze medalist Sweden at 417. Moore produced the lowest score among the players with a 12-under 204 for the three rounds, while teammate Levin shot 206.
In 2002, the United States squad of D.J. Trahan, Hunter Mahan and Ricky Barnes, all PGA Tour players, defeated France by three shots in Malaysia. Although there are no individual awards, Marcus Fraser of Australia finished at 281 (7-under-par), one stroke ahead of Gregory Bourdy of France. Mahan was the low American with a score of 288.
Jack Nicklaus, who represented the USA in 1960 at Merion Golf Club (East Course), in Ardmore, Pa., holds the 72-hole individual scoring record of 269. The United States of America has prevailed in 13 of the 27 competitions and Great Britain & Ireland has won four times.
