Go Ready for 2019 Arnold Palmer Cup
ROLAND, Ark. – South Carolina rising-senior Lois Kaye Go will play in the 2019 Arnold Palmer Cup this weekend at the The Alotian Club, with the competition broadcasted worldwide via GolfChannel.com.
“I am super excited for the Arnold Palmer Cup,” Go said. “It is already such a great honor to be a part of an event that has Mr. Palmer’s name on it, but what will make it more special are the people who I will share this experience with. I look forward to creating long-lasting memories and relationships with the players, coaches, and staff. And of course, I look forward to a great week of golf in an amazing golf course.”
Go will compete in the 23rd annual Arnold Palmer Cup as a part of the international team. The Arnold Palmer Cup sees the best U.S. and international collegiate golfers competing on co-ed teams from June 7-9 at venues that alternate between domestic (U.S.) and international sites each year.
This year marks the second time there will be a women’s competition between the United States and international side at the Arnold Palmer Cup.
The three-day event gets underway Friday with 12 fourball matches – six on the women’s side and six on the men’s side. Saturday features mixed foursome matches in the morning before 12 more fourball matches are contested in the afternoon. The tournament concludes with singles matches Sunday and the closing ceremony will take place shortly after the final match.
Teams will be awarded one point for every match won and matches that end in a tie will result in a half point for each squad. There will be a winner on both the men’s and women’s sides.
Go, a native of Cebu City, Philippines, earned a place on the international squad by the international committee. Go recently completed her junior campaign, capped off by being named a Women’s Golf Coaches Association All-American. She completed the 2018-19 campaign with a scoring average of 72.82, the eighth-best single-season scoring average in program history. Her top performance during the season was at the Allstate Sugar Bowl, where she finished in a tie for third, tying her best career finish. She also claimed a top-5 finish at the 2019 SEC Championships. Off the course, Go was awarded with the SEC Scholar Athlete of the Year and was named to the SEC Community Service team.
