University of Stirling golf scholar Lorna McClymont has helped Team International secure the win over Team America at this year’s Arnold Palmer Cup in Geneva, Switzerland. 

Following a brilliant run of form this year in the R&A Student Tour Series, the Stirling golfer won the Order of Merit, giving her the opportunity to play at the Arnold Palmer Cup. 

With Team America winning the previous event, Lorna and Team International were motivated to deny a repeat result this year. 

After three rounds, both teams were level, and it was anyone’s game heading into the final round. An impressive performance from Team International on the final day helped to secure a 33-27 win over their American counterparts, bringing home the trophy for 2022. 

Speaking on the quality of the course surface, Lorna said: “The greens were nice and quick, so we were able to put a nice roll on the ball rather than having to force it.” 

The Arnold Palmer Cup was founded in 1997 and is a Ryder Cup-format tournament for top university golfers from across the globe, pitting the United States against a team comprised of international players. Often a milestone for up-and-coming golfers, many who have competed in the event have gone on to play on the PGA, LPGA, and European Tour.
