Lee McCoy to play in Palmer Cup, two PGA events
ATHENS, Ga. – Golfer Lee McCoy will be representing the United States and the University of Georgia in the 19th annual Palmer Cup this weekend.
McCoy, who just completed his junior season with the Bulldogs, and nine other Americans will take on their European collegiate counterparts Friday through Sunday at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Ill. The event will consist of foursome and four-ball matches on Friday and singles matches on Saturday and Sunday. Results can be found at PalmerCup.org.
McCoy will be the ninth Bulldog to play for the United States Palmer Cup squad. He joins two-time players Nick Cassini, Brian Harman, Russell Henley, Chris Kirk and Adam Mitchell as well as Erik Compton, Ryan Hybl and Michael Morrison. Coach Chris Haack served two stints as the United States captain.
Also, it was announced earlier this week that McCoy has been extended a sponsor exemption for the PGA Tour’s John Deere Classic, which will be held July 9-12 in Illinois. Harman is the tournament’s defending champion. McCoy earlier received a sponsor exemption for the Travelers Championship June 25-28 in Connecticut.
