The United States and European teams have been announced for the 2010 Palmer Cup at Royal Portrush Golf Club in Northern Ireland. The annual Ryder Cup-style competition will be played June 24-26.

Among the players on Team Europe will be Augusta State’s Henrik Norlander and Andrea Pavan of Texas A&M. Both players will be competing in their second Palmer Cup after leading the Europe to victory last summer at Cherry Hills Country Club.

Team USA will feature Florida senior Tyson Alexander, whose father, Buddy, coached the U.S. to victory at Whistling Straits in 2005. The United States team does not have a returning player from last year’s squad.
