USC's Amari Avery Selected To 2022 U.S. Arnold Palmer Cup Golf Team

Apr 19, 2022

USC freshman Amari Avery, just days after being named to the Curtis Cup team, earned another national assignment, selected Tuesday (April 19) to the U.S. 2022 Arnold Palmer Cup team.

Avery earned an automatic nod as being among the top six on the Arnold Palmer Cup rankings.

Per the Arnold Cup, "using Golfstat's NCAA Player Ranking as a base, the Arnold Palmer Cup Ranking awards bonus points for wins and high finishes and a penalty for poor finishes. The ranking also contains a strength of schedule component."

The event is scheduled for July 1-3 at the Golf Club de Genève July 1-3 in Switzerland.

USC's Allisen Corpuz played in the 2021 edition for the U.S. as well as in 2020 along with fellow Trojans Alyaa Abdulghany and Gabriela Ruffels, who were members of the international side.

Current senior Malia Nam joined Jennifer Chang on the U.S. team in 2019.

Other Trojans who have played in the Arnold Palmer Cup include former USC golfer Yuxin Lin (2020), Justin Suh (2018), Sean Crocker (2017), Rico Hoey (2014, 2016), Tim Sluiter (2008, 2009) and Jamie Lovemark (2007).

Avery will compete in the Arnold Palmer less than three weeks after representing the U.S. in the Curtis Cup, set for June 10-12 at Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pa.

Heading into the Pac-12 Championships, Avery's stroke average is a team-best 71.28 through 18 rounds, which is under the USC season record. She is second on the team with six rounds in the 60s to go with nine rounds under par and 10 of par or better. Her five top 8s to start her season is the best freshman start in at least two decades.
