Nathan Smith and Todd White, 2013 USA Walker Cup teammates, defeated Sherrill Britt and Greg Earnhardt, 7 and 5, in the final match to win the inaugural U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship at The Olympic Club’s Lake Course, which has hosted five U.S. Opens.
“Great satisfaction,” said White, of winning “Great satisfaction, knowing that with Nathan here we’re national champions.”
“I think Nathan’s got such a good short game,” said Earnhardt, an insurance agent who battled blisters on his feet and toes for the final three rounds. “You know he’s never out of the hole no matter where he is, and he’s such a good putter and then Todd hits it so well.” …..
