U.S. Amateur Four-Ball taken by Walker Cup vets
By Torleif Sorenson on 5/7/15
Both White and Smith have long golf résumés; the 36-year-old Smith has four U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship victories among his 33 USGA appearances. The 47-year-old White has 16 USGA appearances of his own.
The men's and women's Four-Ball Championship is the replacement for the Public Links Championships, which were discontinued after last year. The inaugural U.S. Women's Amateur Four-Ball Championship will begin on Saturday at the Tom Doak-designed Pacific Dunes Course at Bandon Dunes in Oregon this coming Saturday morning.

Brilliant thinking, let's make one trophy for a two man winning team.
Good point srogers13. True, they get to keep the medals but what do they put in their trophy case?
On the other hand, I applaud the USGA on their fiscal conservatism. Saving 50% on the trophy costs was brilliant. I wonder if they recycled the Publinx trophy, thus saving even more money for their cash strapped organization?
Maybe there is a zipper or velcro holding the trophy together
