|Dates||20–21 May 1955|
|Venue||Old Course at St Andrews|
|Location||St Andrews, Scotland|
|United States wins the Walker Cup|
The United States won all four of the foursomes matches on the first day. Great Britain and Ireland won just two of the singles matches on the second day, both at the final hole, to give the United States a convincing victory. William C. Campbell, the United States playing captain, did not select himself for any of the matches.
Four 36-hole matches of foursomes were played on Friday and eight singles matches on Saturday. Each of the 12 matches was worth one point in the larger team competition. If a match was all square after the 36th hole extra holes were not played. The team with most points won the competition. If the two teams were tied, the previous winner would retain the trophy.
Great Britain & Ireland had a team of 10 plus a non-playing captain. The United States only selected a team of 9, which included a playing captain.
