EVANSTON, Ill. -- The European team has been announced for the 2012 Palmer Cup at The Royal County Down Golf Club in Newcastle, Northern Ireland, and for the second-consecutive year Northwestern assistant coach David Inglis will serve as the European's assistant coach.
Inglis, a native of Scotland, competed on the 2001 and 2003 European Palmer Cup squads, helping the team to a victory in 2003. Inglis played his collegiate golf from 2000-04 at Tulsa, where he was a four-time Western Athletic Conference (WAC) champion and a three-time All-American.
Inglis became the first former Palmer Cup player to serve as a coach in the annual Ryder Cup-style event for college players last year at the Stanwich Club outside Greenwich, Conn., an event that the American side won.
"Out of the four Palmer Cups I have been a part of, this is the first that will take place on European soil." Inglis said. "Royal County Down is a phenomenal course that will showcase great golf by two very strong teams. I can't wait for it to begin."
Inglis' Team Europe consists of TCU's Julien Brun, Sebastian Cappelen of Arkansas, Liberty's Robert Karlsson, Thomas Pieters of Illinois, UCLA's Pontus Widegren, Daan Huizing of Utrecht University in the Netherlands and David Booth and Graeme Robertson of the University of Stirling in Scotland.
The United States leads the Palmer Cup series 8-6-1 and has captured the last two meetings.
