This past summer, Eckroat had runner-up showings at the Pacific Coast Amateur and the Oklahoma Golf Association State Amateur Championship.
Cummins becomes the second OU player to represent the Sooners at the event, joining teammate Brad Dalke. Dalke and OU head coach Ryan Hybl led the U.S. squad to a victory over the international team in the 2018 Arnold Palmer Cup.
Cummins has helped the Sooners to three team wins this season. The junior guided OU to a one-shot win at the Southern Highlands Collegiate on Tuesday in Las Vegas. Cummins is ranked No. 22 nationally by GolfStat and has a 70.77 stroke average this season. The Weatherford, Okla., native has three top-10 finishes this season.
The Arnold Palmer Cup was co-founded by Arnold Palmer and The Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) and began at the Bay Hill Club & Lodge, Orlando, Fla. in 1997. The event is a Ryder Cup-style tournament featuring the top male university/college golfers matching the United States against Europe.
The Arnold Palmer Cup is supported by Arnie’s Army Charitable Foundation. The Arnold Palmer Cup provides a platform for perpetuating Arnold Palmer’s commitment to youth development and the growth of amateur/collegiate golf.
A spot on the International side will be reserved for both a men’s and women’s golfer for The R&A Scholar Tournament champion, which will be held at St. Andrews on April 1-2. The four coach’s picks will be announced May 3.
