Georgia Tech's Ollie Schneiderjans Posts Singles Win at the Palmer Cup

Georgia Tech senior golfer Ollie Schneiderjans contributed to the United States cause at the Palmer Cup by defeating Europe’s Pep Angles 3 and 1. His win was one of four singles victories to go along with three other matches that U.S. golfers halved to pull the U.S into a 10-10 tie with Europe. The event is being held at the Walter Heath Golf Club in Surrey, England.

The 10-10 deadlock is the first time that both the U.S. and European sides have gone into the final round tied in this event since 2005.

The U.S. kids won the first four matches Friday and actually pulled ahead before Europe went 3-0-3 in the later matches to end the day in a deadlock.

In Schneiderjans matchup versus Angles, the Tech senior halved the first hole with his European opposition before he won the next three holes to build a commanding lead. Pep Angles was able to cut  the lead to 2-down on a few occasions but then conceded the 17th hole giving Schneiderjans the win.

In other matches on Friday, Trey Mullinax was able to dispatch Europe’s 3 and 1, Robby Shelton was able to defeat Jon Rahm 1-up, and Bryson Dechambeau defeated Louis Tomlinson 5 and 4. Those victories gave the United States an 8 1/2 – 5 1/2 lead at that point before the European rally.
