April 23, 2009
NORMAN, Okla. - Sophomore Steve Ziegler was one of eight golfers chosen to represent the United States in the 2009 Palmer Cup from June 3-5. The annual tournament, presented by Fisher Capital Partners and hosted this year by the Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver, Colo., pits the best American college golfers against the best European college golfers in a Ryder Cup-style competition.
Along with Ziegler, the American team will consist of Bud Cauley of Alabama, Oklahoma State's Morgan Hoffmann and Trent Leon, Jamie Lovemark of Southern California, Georgia's Adam Mitchell, Cameron Tringale of Georgia Tech, and Marquette's Mike Van Sickle.
Representing the Euros will be Jorge Campillo of Indiana, Arizona State's Stephan Gross, Leonardo Motta of IULM Milan, Augusta State's Henrik Norlander, Chris Paisley and Robin Wingardh of Tennessee, Texas A&M's Andrea Pavan and Tim Sluiter of Southern California.
Last year, the Knowles Family Director of Men's Golf, Conrad Ray, was the only Stanford representative in the Palmer Cup. Ray helped guide the American team in a loss to the Euros at Glasgow Golf Club Gailes Links in Scotland.
The United States leads the all-time Palmer Cup series 6-5-1.
