Charlote's Nagy Named To Palmer Cup Team

Among all the honors in the career of Charlotte 49ers' golfer Corey Nagy, few can match being named to the United States team for this summer's Palmer Cup matches in Ireland.

Nagy, a three-time All-American and individual champion of the Atlantic 10, is one of eight players named to the team which will meet the best European college golfers at Royal Portrush Golf Club June 24-26.

“It’s extremely exciting,” Nagy said in a press release. “Obviously, any time you can represent your country it’s a tremendous honor. This is unique in the sense that only a handful of guys get to go. To be invited is pretty special. It certainly ranks up there in things I’ve accomplished at Charlotte. I feel very honored to be a part of the team.”

In 2008, Charlotte golfer Jonas Enander Hedin played on the European Palmer Cup team, which defeated the American team.

“This is a tremendous honor for Corey,” said 49ers head coach Adam Pry. “Being selected to represent your country is extremely special and will certainly be an experience he will remember for the rest of his life. Corey will have to delay turning professional for another month to play in the Palmer Cup but it will provide a fitting end to a very successful amateur and college career.”

Nagy, who has earned all-America honors in each of his three seasons with the 49ers and has boasted six top-five finishes this season, including victories at the VCU Shootout and the Irish Creek Collegiate, won the 2009 A-10 Championship.

Corey continued success this year.
Good luck to you and the team as you enter into the Conference Championship, Regionals and NCAA's.
I think I speak for all of Charlotte we are proud of you and the Charlotte golf team.
We all will be wearing Niner Green and Red White and Blue.

I find it Ironic that the "Charlotte" Observer can not spell "Charlote"
