Mork Named to Arnold Palmer Cup Staff
Nov. 28, 2017
FORT WORTH, Texas – TCU men’s golf assistant coach Adrien Mörk will serve as an assistant coach at the 2018 Arnold Palmer Cup.
The annual Ryder Cup-style competition will be played July 6-8 at the Evian Resort Golf Club in Evian-les-Bains, France. It features the top male university/college golfers and matches the United States against Europe. In 2018, the participants will include corresponding women golfers who will be added to both the USA and International teams and will thus become the only major tournament which features men and women playing side-by-side as partners.
Mörk, a France native, will serve on the International side of the coaching staff with Jan Dowling of Michigan and Canada.
"I am very honored for being a part of such a prestigious event,” Mörk said. “The Arnold Palmer Cup has been a goal of mine as a player. But even though I have been close a few times, I have never made it. So, I really appreciate that I have made the team as an assistant coach for the International Team. The fact that it will be played at Evian in my home country of France is definitely pretty special."
Mörk is in his first season as an assistant coach at TCU under head coach Bill Montigel. He came to Fort Worth after two years as an assistant coach at UCF. Prior to UCF, Mörk served as coach of the French Golf Federation. He served as the Team Advisor at the 2015 European Team Championship in Sweden, where his squad took a fifth-place finish.
As an amateur player, Mörk represented France in the World and European Team Championships. As a professional, Mörk was the first player ever to shoot a 59 in any European Tour event, accomplishing that feat in the second round of the 2006 Morocco Classic on the Challenge Tour. He played the European Tour in 2007.
