Golfer Horschel named to Palmer Cup Team



Junior Billy Horschel has been named to the prestigious United States Palmer Cup team, announced Tuesday by the Golf Coaches Association of America.

The eight-player U.S. team will compete against the top collegiate players from Europe in the annual Ryder Cup-style competition, June 26-27, at the Glasgow Golf Club Gailes Links.

Horschel is the only returning member from last year’s victorious American team and posted a 4-0 record during the matches at Caves Valley. The United States, who will be coached by Stanford’s Conrad
Ray, leads the series, 6-4-1 but has lost the last two competitions in Europe. The U.S. won last year’s meeting by an 18-6 margin.

Horschel is a three-time All-SEC First-Team selection.
