Hoey Part of Four-Ball Win For U.S. In Palmer Cup

    June 26, 2014

    USC freshman standout Rico Hoey teamed with Jack MaGuire for a 4 & 2 win in today's four-ball session for the U.S. on the second day of the Palmer Cup as England took a 5.5-4.5 lead after Thursday's play at the Walton Heath G.C. in Walton-on-the-Hill England.

    Hoey and Maguire downed Paul Dunne and Grant Forrest, 4 and 2, as America claimed the final two four-ball matches of the day. Maguire birdied No. 4 and parred the fifth to give the U.S. a 2-up lead. Forrest cut the lead to 1-up with birdie at No. 6 but Team USA moved back to 2-up thru eight. Forrest again cut the lead with birdie, this time at No. 11, but the United States closed with an eagle by Hoey and birdie-birdie by Maguire to secure the final three holes.

    Hoey and Maguire fell in the first-round of four-ball Wednesday, 3 & 2.

    Third round singles matches tee off at 9 a.m. in England Friday.
