UNITED STATES NAME TEAM FOR PGA
 
CUP MATCH IN TEXAS
 
By Bob Denney
US PGA Historian
 
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida – The United States will attempt to win back a trophy of which it once claimed unofficial ownership rights as it sends six rookies and four veterans to face Great Britain and Ireland in the 29th PGA Cup, to be conducted Sept. 27-29, at the Omni Barton Creek Resort in Austin, Texas.
The Americans lost the Llandudno International Trophy on home soil for the first time in 2015 at CordeValle in San Martin, California, and the GB and I team held onto the trophy in 2017 with a victory in England.
 
The 10-member U.S. Team in the biennial international showcase for PGA Club Professionals was determined through a two-year points system that includes the past two PGA Professional Championships and two PGA Championships. The points race ended with last week’s PGA Championship held at Bethpage Black Course in Farmingdale, New York.
