Europe Wins Palmer Cup Presented By Monster

June 27, 2008

IRVINE, Scotland - The European team recorded an impressive performance to come back and steal the Palmer Cup away from the Americans, as they won three and halved three singles matches on the second day of competition to reclaim the Palmer Cup presented by Monster at Glasgow Golf Club Gailes Links, 14-10. The Americans held a 6.5-5.5 advantage over Europe after the first day of play, but Europe swept the second day morning foursomes matches to win 8.5 of the days 12 points.

The United States, which was lead by Stanford's Knowles Family Director of Men's Golf, Conrad Ray, jumped out to an early lead after the first day of competition, but were unable to build upon the one point lead they had heading into the final day.

'We got edged out at the end, but it was a fantastic trip and great honor to coach the squad,' commented Ray.

The Americans still hold the all-time advantage over Europe in the Palmer Cup series, 6-5-1, but has lost three straight in Europe.
