There's no doubting the American golf fan's extreme interest in the Ryder Cup. The biennial matches pit the top professional golfers from the U.S. against their equally-impressive counterparts from Europe.

If you're starving for a bit of international competition among the world's elite players and just can't wait until the next Ryder Cup in 2014, you're in luck. This is a Walker Cup summer and in the amateur game, all roads lead to the National Golf Links of America for the Sept. 6-8 matches.

Of course, there's plenty of work to be done before the rosters are filled out. Starting last week, an eventful slate of high-level summer events. Some of the top amateurs in the game began what they hope is a summer that ends in Southampton, N.Y.

Here are the events amateurgolf.com will be focusing its coverage on as the summer progresses and the nation's top collegiate-aged amateurs and mid- amateurs pad their resumes in hopes of making the U.S. Walker Cup squad:
