Team USA will have some championship experience at the helm at the 2020 Arnold Palmer Cup at Ireland’s Lahinch Golf Club July 3-5.

Oklahoma State men’s head coach Alan Bratton and Duke women’s head coach Dan Brooks were announced as the U.S. coaches on Wednesday evening. Washington men’s head coach Alan Murray (Ireland) and Virginia women’s head coach Ria Quiazon Scott (Philippines) will head up the International team.

“We’re thrilled with the coaches selected for the 2020 Arnold Palmer Cup,” said Jon Podany, CEO of ArnoldPalmer Enterprises and President of the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation via a press release. “Each of these coaches has an incredible record of preparing college-aged men and women for the top ranks of golf and for life; and they’re sure to inspire their teams during one of the amateur game’s premiere events. With their leadership, a top field of competitors, and the beautiful course at Lahinch Golf Club, it’s going to be an incredible competition.”
