August 30th 2010 - David Chung, Scott Langley and Peter Uihlein were selected by the U.S. Golf Association to represent the U.S. at the 2010 World Amateur Team Championship. The event will be played Oct. 28-31 at Olivos Golf Club and Buenos Aires Golf Club in Argentina.

Uihlein won the 2010 U.S. Amateur, Chung finished runner-up and Langley won the 2010 NCAA Championship and tied for low-amateur honors at the 2010 U.S. Open.

Russell Henley and Morgan Hoffmann were named the first and second alternates, respectively.

Fred Ridley, who was president of the USGA in 2004-2005, will serve as the Team USA captain.

"The players selected for the USA Team all have played tremendous golf throughout their careers and on grand stages in 2010," Ridley said. "More importantly, they are fine young men of character and each possesses the human qualities which the game of golf represents."

The biennial competition has been played since 1958. Scotland is the defending champion, having won the 2008 title in Australia. The U.S. last won the championship in 2004, and has captured the trophy a record 13 times.
