Gary Hurley in action at Rich Harvest Farms

The United States defeated Europe 18-12  to reclaim the Palmer Cup at Rich Harvest Farms where Gary Hurley rounded off his second appearance in the event with a singles win.

The Americans now lead the all-time series 10-8 with one match halved following their 6-4 victory in the final singles session.

Team USA need only two points to win the Palmer Cup and Hunter Stewart’s 4 and 3 victory against Thomas Detry put the Americans one match away from reclaiming the cup.

Clement Sordet kept Europe’s hopes alive briefly with a 2 and 1 win over Anders Albertson before the United States clinched the Palmer Cup with near simultaneous victories by Beau Hossler and Ollie Schniederjans.

Hossler defeated Pep Angles, 2 and 1, while Schneiderjans beat Max Rottluff, 5 and 3. 

Stewart and Robby Shelton of Team USA became the 15th and 16th players to post a 4-0 record at a Palmer Cup and the first since Andrew Yun of the United States in 2012.

It was the first time that multiple players went undefeated and untied since Europe accomplished the same feat in 2006.

Matthias Schwab of Rohrmoos, Austria, and Hunter Stewart of Lexington, Ky., were named recipients of the Michael Carter Award which is presented to the Palmer Cup participant that best represents the qualities and ideals sportsmanship, integrity and upholding of the game.

Hurley lost 6 and 5 to Jack Maguire in Saturday's singles but gained some measure of revenge with a one hole victory on Sunday, leaving him with a 2-2-0 record overall. Full results
