Ford Named to European Palmer Cup Team



Tennessee senior Charlie Ford has been named to the European team for the 2008 Palmer Cup presented by Monster, announced Wednesday by the Golf Coaches’ Association of America.

The annual Ryder Cup-style competition will be played June 26-27 on the 6,903 yard, par 71 Willie Park Junior designed Glasgow Golf Club Gailes Links when the top collegiate players from the United States tee off against their counterparts from Europe.

Ford along with Jonas Blixt of Florida State, Stirling’s Scott Borrowman, Johnnie Caldwell of South Alabama, Indiana’s Jorge Campillo, Jonas Enander Hedin of Charlotte, Gareth Shaw of East Tennessee State and Southern California’s Tim Sluiter comprise the European team. Blixt, Campillo and Shaw competed in last year’s matches at Caves Valley.

The European team - who will be coached by Mårten Olander of Sweden - has won the past two events in Europe but trails the series, 6-4-1.

“This is a good group with a multitude of talents,” said Olander. “I think we have a really good chance of winning the Cup. I’m excited to be part of the Palmer Cup and work with future stars of professional golf.”
