Haas used key wins at the 15th and the 16th to oust British Amateur champion Gary Wolstenholme, 1-up. Haas also teamed with Kuehne in the foursomes and the duo outlasted Wolstenholme and Michael Skelton, 2 & 1.
"I'm just glad I'm helping the team," said the 22-year-old Haas. "But, if I go 4-0 and we don't win the Cup, it will be disappointing."
Casey Wittenberg did his part for the Americans. Wittenberg, who was the runner-up at the U.S. Amateur, trounced Graham Gordon, 5 & 4.
The Walker Cup Match is a competition featuring a pair of 10-man teams, one representing the U.S. and the other Great Britain and Ireland. There are 24 points available, with one point being rewarded for each win.
The Great Britain and Ireland squad has won the last two championships.
