LOS ANGELES (AP) — U.S. Amateur champion Doc Redman and runner-up Doug Ghim were among the 10 players selected Sunday to the U.S. Walker Cup team. Ghim will be joined by fellow Longhorn Scottie Scheffler on the team.

Redman, a 19-year-old sophomore at Clemson, beat Ghim on the 37th hole Sunday at Riviera Country Club. Ghim is a senior at Texas.

Redman and Ghim will join Cameron Champ, Stewart Hagestad, Maverick McNealy, Collin Morikawa, Braden Thornberry, Norman Xiong, Will Zalatoris and Scheffler in the Sept. 9-10 matches against Britain and Ireland at Los Angeles Country Club.

John “Spider” Miller will captain the U.S. squad. He also directed the 2015 team in a 16 1/2-9 1/2 loss at Royal Lytham and St. Annes in England. McNealy is the only holdover from that team.

The United States leads the biennial series 35-9-1.
