NORMAN, Okla.  ?  The United States team has been announced for the 2008 Palmer Cup presented by Monster. The annual Ryder Cup-style competition will be played June 26-27 on the 6,903 yard, par 71 Willie Park Junior designed Glasgow Golf Club Gailes Links when the top collegiate players from the United States tee off against their counterparts from Europe.

    Kevin Chappell of UCLA, Louisville?s Derek Fathauer, Rickie Fowler of Oklahoma State, San Diego State?s Aaron Goldberg, Chesson Hadley of Georgia Tech, Florida?s Billy Horschel, Adam Mitchell of Georgia and Alabama?s Michael Thompson comprise Team USA. Horschel is the only returning member from last year?s victorious American team and posted a 4-0 record during the matches at Caves Valley. The United States - who will be coached by Stanford?s Conrad Ray - leads the series, 6-4-1, but have lost the last two competitions in Europe.

    ?It?s an honor to be chosen to coach the U.S. team at the U.S. Palmer Cup presented by Monster,? said Ray. ?This group of players represents the finest of college and amateur golf in the U.S. We are looking forward to the challenge of Glasgow Golf Club Gailes Links and a great win.?
