Alabama’s Davis Riley Ranked No. 2 in the Fall Arnold Palmer Cup Rankings
The Golf Coaches Association of America announced Thursday that Alabama junior Davis Riley is ranked No. 2 in the Fall Arnold Palmer Cup ranking for the 2018 event.
The top six golfers from the final ranking in the spring from both the United States and international men and women – 12 total – will be among the 24 individuals selected to compete in the Arnold Palmer Cup, held July 6-8 at Evian Resort Golf Club. The 2018 Arnold Palmer Cup will be the first using the expanded format of United States men’s and women’s collegiate golfers versus their counterparts from around the world.
Using Golfstat’s NCAA Player Ranking as a base, the Arnold Palmer Cup ranking awards bonus points for wins and high finishes and a penalty for poor finishes. The ranking also contains a strength of schedule component.
The remaining six men’s and women’s spots for the United States will consist of five committee selections, including at least one non-Division I golfer, and a coaches pick. The balance of the international team will include the men’s and women’s winners of The R&A Scholars Tournament, four committee selections and a coaches pick.
