The 2013 Walker Cup will be played at The National Golf Links of America, where GB&I will travel to Southampton, New York to contest the 44th Match against USA's most talented amateurs.

A total of 26 matches will be played during the two-day competition. Two different forms of match play are used in the competition; singles and foursomes (alternate shot). Four foursomes and eight singles matches are played on the first day of the competition. On the second and final day of the competition there are again four foursome matches but there are two additional single matches, so that all team members play in the final session of the competition.
Foursomes is an alternate shot format where two players, who pair up as partners, represent each team and alternately play one ball. One player from each side will play from the teeing ground of the odd number holes and his partner will play the tee shots on the even number holes. During play of the hole, the partners alternate play of their ball into the hole.
