The Eisenhower Trophy is headed again to the US for the primary time in 9 years.

Led via novice stars Gordon Sargent, Nick Dunlap, and David Ford, the U.S. staff shot a collective 18-under rating of 540.

Humorous sufficient, this yr marks the primary example during which the U.S. received the Walker Cup and Eisenhower Trophy in the similar yr.

Earlier than this yr, the International Novice Workforce Championship (WATC) happened in even years, whilst the Walker Cup was once held in strange years.

The COVID-19 pandemic modified that, because the 2020 version of the WATC was once canceled. Going ahead, those two occasions will happen in the similar yr.

America will attempt to shield its WATC identify in 2025 the place Singapore will host. With a bit of luck, any other international pandemic is not going to regulate the ones plans.

However, Sargent, Ford, and Dunlap will go back house with the Eisenhower Trophy this weekend, which is strictly what Bryson DeChambeau, Beau Hossler, and Denny McCarthy did in 2014.
