Nigel Edwards has been confirmed as the Great Britain and Ireland captain for next year's Walker Cup at Royal Lytham & St Annes.

The 45-year-old Welshman, who twice played on winning teams, will be skippering the team for the third time.

He first took charge in 2011 for the victory at Royal Aberdeen and kept the role for the 2013 match in Southampton, New York, where the trophy was relinquished to the United States.

Edwards, who is performance director for England Golf, said: "I'm very proud to have the opportunity to captain the Great Britain and Ireland Walker Cup team for a third time in 2015.

"I am looking forward to continuing my involvement and using my past experience as both a player and captain to make sure the players are prepared to play to the best of their ability."
