Alabama Dominates Palmer Cup Squad
Alabama's Jay Seawell will serve as the USA's head coach. The 10-man team will feature three Crimson Tide golfers with Cory Whitsett, Bobby Wyatt and Justin Thomas selected for the United States team.
Whitsett was among the six U.S. players selected by the Palmer Cup Ranking. He was joined by California's Michael Kim, North Florida's Sean Dale, Patrick Rodgers of Stanford, New Mexico's James Erkenbeck, and Cal's Michael Weaver off the ranking.
Palmer Cup Committee selections were Daniel Berger of Florida State, Abilene Christian's Alex Carpenter and Thomas. Bobby Wyatt of Alabama was Seawell's coach's pick.
Julien Brun of TCU (France), Iowa State's Scott Fernandez (Spain), Pedro Figueiredo (Portugal) and Pontus Widegren (Sweden) of UCLA, UCF's Greg Eason (England) and California's Joel Stalter (France) were the six European players selected by the Palmer Cup Ranking. Kevin Phelan (Ireland) of North Florida and Nova Southeastern's Ben Taylor (England) were committee selections. Gary Hurley of NIU Maynooth (Ireland) qualified for Team Europe by winning The R&A Foundation Scholars' Tournament. Arkansas' Sebastian Cappelen was coach Andrew Coltart's coach's pick.
Thomas, Carpenter and Rodgers have each previously represented the United States in the Palmer Cup. Widegren will become just the fourth golfer to play in four Palmer Cups while European teammates Cappelen and Brun are competing in their third and second, respectively.
