It's the problem Irish men who went to live and work in America have had for years; unable or afraid to return home because of visa problems that might get flagged by immigration and not allow them back into the United States.

It also turned out to be much the same reason Sam Horsfield missed the Walker Cup.  Even though he has lived in the USA since he was five years old, Horsefield believed he did not have the correct visa and was worried he would not be allowed return to the USA.

“Given the short timeline between selection and travel for the Walker Cup, I was unfortunately not able to secure the necessary paperwork to travel back to the U.K. on my current visa,” Horsfield said. “It was obviously very disappointing, but more than anything, I did not want it to be a distraction for the team. Needless to say, I was thrilled to see the GB&I team play so well, and I hope to be a part of future Walker Cup teams.”

As it turned GB&I won regardless but it was to see Sam miss out just because of paperwork.
