Bennett Picks up First Win at Arnold Palmer Cup
SUGAR GROVE, Ill. – Texas A&M’s Sam Bennett picked up a victory alongside Duke’s Erica Shepard in the afternoon mixed-foursome match 5&4 at Rich Harvest Farms on Saturday.
The All-American and the Blue Devil dominated the match from start to finish, failing to fall behind Team International’s Emily Price (Kent State) and Joe Pagdin (Florida). The American duo took hole one and then after Team International tied things up on three, the pair won four of the next eight holes to seal the match.
Team USA took a four-match lead after day two, holding a 20-16 advantage after the conclusion of the mixed-foursome matches.
The morning saw Bennett and Brad Reeves (Arizona) drop their foursome match 2&1 to Pontus Nyholm (Campbell) and Hugo Townsend (Boise State).
The Arnold Palmer Cup will be decided tomorrow after singles matches are completed.
