UTEP Golfer Ranked Among Top in Europe

NORMAN, Okla.- UTEP men’s golfer Frederik Dreier dropped five spots in the most recent Arnold Palmer Cup rankings. The senior, previously ranked No. 4, is now No. 9 among European collegiate golfers.

The final ranking for the June 9-11 match will be released March 9, with the teams announced March 16.

Started in 1997, the Arnold Palmer Cup is a Ryder Cup-style competition that puts the top collegiate men’s United States players against the top collegiate men’s European players in a match play format with team, mixed team and singles sessions.

The rankings were first introduced in 2013 to select the first six golfers for each side, with the remaining four being selected by a committee and a coach for the Americans and two committee selections, a coach’s pick and the R&A Scholars Tournament champions for the European side.

UTEP Golf 2016-17 - 089Dreier, a Birkeroed, Denmark native, carded 4-over 228 (72-74-74) to mark a tie for 47th at the John A. Burns Intercollegiate in Lihue, Hawaii on February 17. The Miners finished in a tie for ninth as a team at the tournament.

The reigning Conference USA Golfer of the Year, Dreier fired a two-over-par 215 (69-77-69) to finish tied for sixth at the Arizona Intercollegiate in January, leading the UTEP squad. The senior registered four top 10 finishes in five tournaments during the fall, including two runner-up showings at the Fighting Irish Classic and the Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate that earned him a C-USA Golfer of the Week honor (Oct. 19). His finish at the Fighting Irish Classic helped the team secure the title while he tallied 16 birdies. The senior boasts a 70.2 scoring average and helped his team to three tournament championships.

The Arnold Palmer Cup uses Golfstat’s NCAA Player Ranking as a base and awards points for wins and high finishes and a negative bonus for poor finishes. Strength of schedule is also factored in.

The 20th annual event will tee off June 9-11 at the Atlanta Athletic Club in Johns Creek, Georgia.

Dreier will join his team at the National Invitational Tournament in Tucson on Monday. Live scoring will be available at golfstat.com.

“I thought we had the utensils to get higher up in each field,” UTEP men’s head coach Scott Lieberwirth said. “It’s not the finish we wanted. Nobody really played poorly, we just didn’t get a low score. Everyone was playing very similar golf, not great but not too bad either. We had chances to do much better, we just really couldn’t get on much of a roll.”
Sophomore Oklahoma transfer Aaron Terrazas finished with the top score for the Miners, firing 1-over-par 217 (74-71-72) for a share of 26th place.

“It [tourney play] was just a matter of not really capitalizing on the good things we did,” Lieberwirth said. “We just couldn’t get on a run, it was just the story of this week.”
 
The Miners will lace up their spikes again February 27-28 for the National Invitational Tournament in Tucson, Ariz.  
 
“We’ve got about one week at home so we want to defiantly spend this week making the necessary adjustments,” Lieberwirth said. “The course we’re going to in Tucson has similarities to this one [Wailua Golf Course], we just need to adjust.”
Tee off at the Omni Tucson National Golf Course is set for 8 a.m. Live stats will be available at golfstat.com.
