UTEP’s Dreier Ranked In Arnold Palmer Cup

NORMAN, Okla.- UTEP men’s golfer Frederik Dreier is ranked No. 4 among European collegiate golfers in the first of three spring Arnold Palmer Cup Rankings. The Birkeroed, Denmark native was ranked No. 13 in the fall rankings.
 
Additional rankings will be released Feb. 23 and March 9The 10-person teams for both Europe and the United States will be announcedMarch 16 during the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard.
 
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.  
 
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 John Burns Intercollegiate in Lihue, Kauai, Hawaii, February 15-17. Live scoring will be available at golfstat.com.
