The 2015 Palmer Cup, a competition between the top collegiate players from the US and Europe, will tee off this weekend at Rich Harvest Farms outside Chicago. The competition promises to be fierce as more and more elite young Europeans hone their skills at US colleges. Eight of the ten members on the European team attend or attended US colleges.

Our own Carr Vernon from Poplar Bluff, MO,  the lone pick from a DII school (Cal State, Monterey Bay) is joined by an all-star squad that includes: Anders Albertson, a senior from Georgia Tech, Beau Hossler, a sophomore at Texas, Kyle Jones, a senior at Baylor, Jack Maguire, a soph at Florida State, Lee McCoy, a junior at Georgia, Maverick McNealey, a soph at Stanford, Ollie Schneiderjans, a senior at Georgia Tech, Robby Shelton, a junior at Alabama, and Hunter Stewart, a senior at Vanderbilt. The team is coached by Bruce Heppler, head coach at Georgia Tech.

Team Europe, coached by Jean Van De Velde (he of the famous meltdown in the Open at the 18th at Carnoustie) is comprised of: Pep Angles, a senior at Central Arkansas, Rowin Caron, a junior at Florida State, Thomas Detry, a junior at Illinois, Adrian Meronk, a junior at East Tennessee, Mattias Schwab, a soph at Vanderbilt, Clement Sordet, a senior at Texas Tech, Arizona State juniors Jon Rahm and Max Rotluff, and two players who aren’t in US colleges, Mathias Eggenberger and Gary Hurley.

It’s interesting that neither squad has a player from the two teams that faced off in the NCAA DI championship match–LSU or USC. Just shows you how capricious match play is…

The teams will play four ball and foursomes on Friday the 12th, and ten singles matches on Saturday and Sunday. The US leads the competition 9-8-1. The first event was held at Arnie’s own Bay Hill Club in 1997.
