Chris Paisley has been selected in the European team of eight to face the United States in the annual Palmer Cup presented by Fisher Capital Partners at Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver, Colorado on 3rd - 5th June.

The 23 year old from Northumberland is the only Englishman in the European team that includes two players each from Italy and Sweden and one each from Germany, the Netherlands and Spain.

It will be Paisley's first appearance in the Palmer Cup which is the annual Ryder Cup-style contest between university students from each continent.
