Alabama's Cauley On Palmer Cup Team
The United States and Europe will play their annual Ryder Cup-style competition on June 3-5 at Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver, Colo. The 2009 Palmer Cup is presented by Fisher Capital Partners.
"Besides the All-America teams, the Palmer Cup is the elite of college golf," Alabama Coach Jay Seawell said. "For Bud to do this as a true freshman it is a big deal. There is another true freshman on there, Morgan Hoffman (Oklahoma State). It just shows you that young guys can do it and Bud has played fantastic and he deserves this honor."
Cauley, a Jacksonville, Fla., native is the fourth Crimson Tide player to be selected to play in the Palmer Cup and the second UA player selected to the United States' team. Cauley joins Michael Thompson, who played for the American's 2008 Palmer Cup team. Former Alabama golfers Allan MacDonald (1997) and Lars Brovold (2004) also competed in the Palmer Cup, playing for the European team.
Along with Cauley, the American team will consist of Oklahoma State's Hoffmann and Trent Leon, Jamie Lovemark of Southern California, Georgia's Adam Mitchell, Cameron Tringale of Georgia Tech, Marquette's Mike Van Sickle and Colorado native Steve Ziegler of Stanford.
The European team is represented by Indiana's Jorge Campillo, Stephan Gross of Arizona State, Leonardo Motta of IULM Milan, Augusta State's Henrick Norlander, Chris Paisley and Robin Wingardh of Tennessee, Texas A&M's Andrea Pavan and Tim Sluiter of Southern California.
The United States leads the all-time Palmer Cup series 6-5-1.
