The European 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.

    Jonas Blixt of Florida State, Stirling?s Scott Borrowman, Johnnie Caldwell of South Alabama, Indiana?s Jorge Campillo, Jonas Enander Hedin of Charlotte, Tennessee?s Charlie Ford, Gareth Shaw of East Tennessee State and Southern California?s Tim Sluiter comprise the European team.
