This continues his tenure in the role following on from an impressive debut at the 2021 Walker Cup. Wilson’s GB&I team put in an emphatic performance before ultimately succumbing, on the final day, to a narrow defeat at the hands of a strong USA team.
“I am very pleased to return as the Captain of the men’s Great Britain and Ireland team. The Walker Cup was a fantastic experience; it taught me a lot which I plan to put into action with the team at the St Andrews Trophy next year.”
Phil Anderton, Chief Development Officer of The R&A, said, “We are delighted to re-appoint Elaine Ratcliffe, Janet Melville and Stuart Wilson as the captains of the GB&I teams for the Curtis Cup, Junior Vagliano Trophy and St Andrews Trophy. It is wonderful that they continue to embrace these roles, as they are inspiring mentors who bring a great deal of knowledge and passion to the teams.”
