US Amateur champ Doc Redman selected to Walker Cup team

Travis Smyth of Australia and Theo Humphrey of Greenwich CT warm up on the driving range. Amateur golfers compete in the Quarterfinal round of match play during the 117th edition of the U.S. Amateur at The Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades CA 8

Redman won holes three through five against Lawrence, the 20-year-old at Virginia Tech, to go 2 up early but did not give signs he was totally in control.

"I always have a lot of confidence from mid-range", said Redman, who puts his hand in his pocket before his stroke as part of his putting routine. Redman and Ghim, a senior at the University of Texas, will be teammates in Walker Cup competition in three weeks at Los Angeles Country Club, where a 10-man team of American amateurs will face a team from Britain and Ireland.

Ghim said halving the first hole against Humphrey with a 10-foot par putt "kind of set the tone I think for the rest of the match".

His most memorable make was a marvelous chip in for an eagle 2 at the eighth hole, shrunken to just 274 yards from its usual 437.

"I was just, like, 'I just have to go all in and go for it all, '" Thompson said.

Among those left out were Sam Burns, who earned the Nicklaus Award as the top player in college golf and recently tied for sixth in a PGA Tour event; mid-am Scott Harvey, who was part of the 2015 Walker Cup team; and IL senior Dylan Meyer, ranked No. 4 in the world.

Redman also joins Raleigh's Webb Simpson (2012 U.S. Open) and Paul Simson (2010 U.S. Senior Amateur) in winning a major U.S. Golf Association title. "And they played some incredible golf", said Juli Inkster, who joined Judy Rankin as the only USA captains to win the Solheim Cup twice. Redman won eight holes, seven of them with pars. But for at least one golfer, Redman's comeback win over Doug Ghim was a reminder of his own heartbreaking loss to Tiger Woods in the same event two decades before.

North and South Korea are technically still at war after the 1950-53 Korean War ended with a truce, not a peace treaty. North Korea claims the annual drills, scheduled for later this month, are a prelude for an invasion.

He then put his 9-iron approach from 175 yards eight feet from the pin at the 18th to square the match. He had just one hole in which he scored under par for the second straight match, yet he moves on to the semifinals. Ghim hit his tee shot in the rough and found two sand traps while Redman was safely on the green in two.

Redman still had a one-up lead playing the 17th hole, which had been good to Redman all week. Redman did get up and dow and won the match 1-up. "You never count a player out".

Redman is the first Clemson golfer to reach the semifinals since Ben Martin reached the finals in 2009.

Redman often caddies at Old Chatham Golf Club during the summer but had Old Chatham member Dean Emerson on the bag at the Amateur.

"I'm so excited to be able to compete for the championship especially after how I played in stroke play, which was horrendous".

He said he will be back at Clemson on Wednesday for the start of fall classes, then return for the Walker Cup matches next month at Los Angeles Country Club.
