Vanderbilt’s Men’s Golf Coach Scott Limbaugh will coach the US team at the 2018 Arnold Palmer Cup held at the Alotian Club in Roland, Arkansas.

The Palmer Cup is an international team event held annually. The teams are made up of collegiate golfers from around the world in a Ryder Cup style format and scoring.

Historically, the field is elite. According to the Palmer Cup site, “Since its inception, over 100 former Arnold Palmer Cup alumni have gone on to earn cards on either the PGA Tour, European Tour or LPGA, 28 have represented Europe or the USA in the Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup, and more than 50 have claimed over 200 victories on the PGA or European Tours. The United States leads the series 12-9-1.”

Limbaugh is a perfect choice as a coach. He has raised the status of Vanderbilt golf since he joined the program in 2012. His teams have 20 tournament victories (including a 20 stroke victory in their last tournament of the Fall season), contended for SEC and National titles, produced conference Player of the Year, and talent for the Euro and Web Tours. As much as it is a coaching position, it is an honor of good work and trust to shepherd young talent for the US. Plus, he gets a cool bag.

The Palmer Cup will be contested June 7-9.
