Europeans hit back in Palmer Cup four-balls
The United States took the advantage at the Palmer Cup on day one thanks to a dominant showing in morning foursome matches.
The U.S. won four of five matches in the morning, with Golfweek's No. 1-ranked player Maverick McNealy and partner Beau Hossler, of Texas, dropping the only morning match at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Ill., for the U.S.
Going out first, Georgia Tech's Ollie Schniederjans partnered with in-state rival Lee McCoy of Georgia to take a convincing 4-and-3 victory over Thomas Detry of Illinois and Hogan Award winner Jon Rahm of Arizona State, setting the tone for the U.S. team.
But the Europeans gained some ground in afternoon four-ball play, taking three of five matches, including a 4-and-3 win for Detry and Adrian Meronk of East Tennessee State over the American duo from Georgia.
Alabama's Robby Shelton and Vanderbilt's Hunter Stewart proved to be a great team, as they won both of their matches.
