NCAA champion Max Homa beat Max Orrin 5 and 3, and the United States won the first six singles matches Saturday in the Walker Cup to take an 8-4 lead over Britain & Ireland at the National Golf Links of America in Southampton, N.Y.

Homa, coming off his senior season at Cal, won the 14th hole with a par and finished off the Englishman with a birdie win on 15.

The biennial event, first played in 1922 at National Golf Links, will close Sunday with four morning foursomes matches and 10 afternoon singles matches.

Cal's Michael Kim and Michael Weaver, Alabama's Bobby Wyatt and Cory Whitsett and Oklahoma State's Jordan Niebrugge teamed with Homa to sweep the first six singles matches. Alabama's Justin Thomas earned a halve in the seventh.

Kim beat Callum Shinkwin 2 and 1, and Weaver topped U.S. Amateur champion Matthew Fitzpatrick 3 and 1. Gavin Moynihan beat Stanford's Patrick Rodgers 2 and 1 in the final match.

"Nothing changes," U.S. captain Jim Holtgrieve said. "It's match play. We still need 5½ points."

Britain & Ireland led 2½-1½ after the four morning foursomes matches. Rodgers and Thomas beat Moynihan and Phelan 2 and 1; and Garrick Porteous and Rhys Pugh topped Weaver and Todd White 3 and 1.

Britain & Ireland won in 2011 at Royal Aberdeen (Scotland), but the U.S. leads the series 34-8-1.
