Booth Leads Scotland To Eisenhower Trophy

Booth Leads Scotland To Eisenhower Trophy

ADELAIDE, Australia. -- Former Augusta State standout Wallace Booth was part of the victorious Scotland team Sunday at the World Amateur Team Championship.


The victory was the first for Scotland, which also claimed the country’s first Eisenhower Trophy after playing as part of Great Britain and Ireland up until 2002.

In brutally tough playing conditions, Scotland tied for the best round of the day – a one-over 147 – and claimed a nine-shot victory over the United States. Sweden, which featured current ASU sophomore Henrik Norlander, took third while France and Italy tied for fourth.

American Rickie Fowler claimed the individual title with a two-over 75 and finished two shots clear of Scotland’s Callum Macaulay and Canada’s Nick Taylor. Booth finished alone in fourth at five-under 285 despite a final-round 79 and England’s Sam Hutsby was fifth.

Norlander (74-68-71-80) tied for 21st at three-over 293.

In the World Amateur, the team’s two best individual scores count.
