Ron Balicki - GCAA Contributor    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Europe will be out trying to make Palmer Cup history. The United States will be out trying to stop the bleeding. That's the setup going into this year's 14th Palmer Cup Matches at Royal Portrush Golf Club in Northern Ireland. The Europeans have won the last two Palmer Cup competitions and will be seeking the elusive hat trick of three in a row, something which has never been accomplished before in this event. Last year, at Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver, Colo., Europe scored a 13-11 victory and in 2008 at Glasgow Golf Club, Gailes Links in Scotland, won by a 14-10 count. More

However, two late birdies by Oliver Schniederjans and a pair of eagles by Cameron Wilson allowed the U.S. to move into a four-way tie at 15-under with Merkulov on 18 putting for birdie. More

Golfweek's Lance Ringler admits to being one of the biggest college golf homers out there, but after seeing what two of the top players in the game did this week in the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, well, he thinks its safe to say these kids can play. And college golf deserves a little more recognition when professional tournament directors are handing out exemptions. Georgia's Russell Henley and Illinois' Scott Langley tied for low-amateur honors at 8-over 292 in the U.S. Open. The duo finished ahead of many of the biggest names in the pro game, including Padraig Harrington, Stewart Cink, Paul Casey, Luke Donald, Steve Stricker and Camilo Villegas. Henley and Langley tied Jim Furyk and Lee Westwood. More
