Summerhays comes from a long line of successful professional golfers and is already acquainted with several PGA Tour players including Tony Finau and Jon Rahm.

It was only a matter of time before the 21-year-old golf star paved his own path to success. With experience on the Palmer Cup team and a U.S. Open under his belt, he is more than prepared to compete for the Walker Cup team and help bring in a victory for the U.S.

In his two years at ASU, Summerhays has already collected a number of accolades. During his freshman season he was named Pac-12 Freshman of the year, had the second-best stroke average by a freshmen in Sun Devil history with 71.33 and had eight top-10 finishes.

His game only improved during his sophomore season when he was named first-team PING GCAA All-American honors, finished third at the NCAA regionals and shot 22-under par 12 times in March.

The 49th Walker Cup will be held at the Old Course in St. Andrews, Scotland from the 2nd-3rd of September. Team U.S.A will be competing in the biennial amateur match against Great Britain and Ireland.

Jon Rahm projected to fall into second in FedExCup rankings
