U.S. and International teams named for match play
Texas freshman Cole Hammer, who helped the Longhorns finish second at the Southern Highlands Collegiate on Tuesday, was named to the U.S. team for the Arnold Palmer Cup.
Hammer, who finished runner-up to UNLV’s Jack Trent in a playoff, is the third Texas player to be named to the team in the last five years, joining Beau Hossler and Doug Ghim (2016 and ’17).
The Golf Coaches Association of America released the teams Wednesday for the 2019 Arnold Palmer Cup, the annual match play competition that will be held June 7-9 at the Alotian Club in Roland, Ark.
On the U.S. women’s team, two golfers from Southern Cal were among the automatic qualifiers, Jennifer Chang and Malia Nam.
Three women from the University of Texas were among the selections: Kaitlyn Papp and Hailee Cooper for the U.S. and Agathe Laisne for the International team.
The International team will feature two players from Texas Tech, Sandy Scott and Ivan Ramirez. Both were automatic qualifiers.
Chandler Phillips of Texas A&M will become the first American to play in three Arnold Palmer Cups.
A spot on the International side will be reserved for both a men’s and women’s golfer for The R&A Scholar Tournament champion, which will be held at St. Andrews on April 1-2. The four coach’s picks will be announced May 3.
