Arnold Palmer Cup: International team increases its lead over Team USA

By

Team International turned up the heat against Team USA on Saturday, increasing its lead to 20½-15½ after two days of match play at the Arnold Palmer Cup being held at the Alotian Golf Club in Roland, Arkansas.

In mixed foursomes, the Europeans made a statement by taking a 8½-3½ advantage.

The International team won the first seven matches before the USA’s Will Gordon and Dylan Kim got on the board with a 3 and 2 victory over Ana Belac and Luis Gagne. The USA’s team of Kaylee Benton and Alex Smalley also posted a victory, along with Jennifer Chang and Brandon Wu, who won their match 7 and 5.

In the afternoon foursomes, the USA’s Abbey Carlson and Emilia Migliaccio won the opening match of the session 3 and 1. But the Americans could only win two more matches as the International team took seven. Gordon and Wu won their match 4 and 2; Haylee Harford and Stephanie Lau won 2 and 1. Kim and Benton halved their match for Team USA as did Hailee Cooper and Malia Nam.

The International team seeks its first Arnold Palmer Cup trophy since 2016.
