Kim, Uriell, Team USA get wins
EVIAN-les-BAINS, France – University of Arkansas graduate Alana Uriell picked up a 2&1 win that clinched Team USA’s 2018 Palmer Cup victory at Evian Resort Golf Club on Sunday.
Uriell was joined by Razorback teammate Dylan Kim who also notched a win in singles action, 1-up. Kim was presented a wild card invitation to The Evian Championship in September after winning four of her five matches.
The United States claimed 18 of 24 points in the final round singles matches to pull away for a 38.5-21.5. This year’s edition of Team USA is the first side to win as the visiting team since the 2010 Americans. Neither side had retained the cup since the US in 2011. The United States now leads the all-time series 12-9-1.
Razorback Maria Fassi and May graduate Alvaro Ortiz both dropped their final matches for the International team.
