1932 USA Wins Walker Cup at Brookline
Francis Ouimet, the 1913 U.S. Open and 1914 and ’31 U.S. Amateur champion, took over the USA captaincy from a now-retired Bob Jones. The 1932 competition was played at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass., and the Americans once again handled the Great Britain and Ireland side with ease, 8-1. George Dunlap recorded the largest victory in the Match, a 10-and-9 singles win over Eric McRuvie. Leonard Crawley made the only dent – figuratively and literally – for the GB&I side. In singles, he defeated George Voigt, 1 up, but his errant approach shot to the 18th green in the morning round of the 36-hole match hit the actual Walker Cup on the fly.
