After sitting out the morning’s foursome matches, Oklahoma State’s Austin Eckroat returned to the American lineup in dominant fashion on Sunday afternoon, recording a 7&6 victory during his singles match at the 48th Walker Cup at Seminole Golf Club.
With his session-opening victory over Mark Power, Eckroat finished the event with a 2-1 mark. He helped the U.S. to a 14-12 over the Great Britain and Ireland squad.
In his match with Power, Eckroat took three of the first four holes en route to a 3-up advantage. Power’s lone win came at the fifth before the Cowboy All-American would answer with a win at the sixth. Eckroat claimed the eighth and would make the turn with a 4-up advantage.
He would win the first three holes of the inward nine to close out the match and put the first point of the session on the board for the Americans.
