Countdown to World Amateur Team Championship

IslandStats.com
The 30th Mens World Amateur Team Championship Eisenhower Trophy (WATC) is fast approaching.

Previously known as the World Amateur Golf Council, comprises 147 National Governing Bodies of Golf in 141 countries and 22 Professional Members, conducts the biennial World Amateur Team Championships.

Jarryd Dillas, Mark Phillips, and Eric West will represent Bermuda from September 21st 24th in Riviera Maya, Mexico.

The idea of a World Amateur Team Championship and the World Amateur Golf Council grew out of a suggestion that the USGA received to consider the possibility of a team match between the USA and Japan in 1957.

The USGA, which was fortunate to have received many such invitations from other countries,simply could not accept them all. The USGA instead suggested a team competition that would bring together the best players of all countries, accommodating all possible interests. Even those American advocates of adding golf to the Olympics seemed satisfied with the World Amateur Team Championship idea.
