Stanford senior Cameron Wilson was named to the Palmer Cup team for the United States, as announced Thursday on the Golf Channel's Morning Drive. The annual Ryder Cup-style competition will be played June 26-28 at Walton Heath Golf Club in Surrey, England.
With Wilson's selection, Stanford will have a player in the Palmer Cup in six consecutive seasons dating back to 2009.
Wilson will be joined at the event by Cardinal assistant coach Phil Rowe, who will serve in the same capacity for Europe's squad. Rowe played in four Palmer Cups from 1999-2002.
The honor for Wilson came one day after he was recognized as one of 10 semifinalists for the Ben Hogan Award, the most prestigious award in men's college golf. Teammate Patrick Rodgers was also a semifinalist.
Wilson headlined the six United States players selected by the Palmer Cup Ranking. He was joined by Georgia Tech's Ollie Schniederjans, Robby Shelton of Alabama, Oklahoma State's Wyndham Clark, Brandon Hagy of Cal and USC's Rico Hoey from the ranking.
Committee selections were Bryson Dechambeau of SMU, Oglethorpe's Anthony Maccaglia and Alabama's Trey Mullinax. Stewart Jolly of LSU was Steve Desimone's coach's pick.
