TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Seminoles.com) – Sophomore Frederik Kjettrup of the Florida State Men’s Golf team has been selected to the 2022 Arnold Palmer Cup, announced on Tuesday afternoon as The Golf Channel revealed both the United States and International teams competing in this year’s competition.

The 2022 Arnold Palmer Cup will be held July 1-3 at the Golf Club de Genève in Cologny, Switzerland.

The Palmer Cup consists of 12 men and 12 women on each team and is made up of the world’s top college students.

Kjettrup Selected to 2022 Arnold Palmer Cup

Kjettrup becomes the seventh Seminole to make the Palmer Cup, joining Jonas Blixt, Daniel Berger, Rowin Caron, Harry Ellis, John Pak and Vincent Norrman. Both Pak and Norrman competed in last year’s event.

The native of Denmark is ranked as the No. 23 golfer nationally according to Golfstat, leading the Seminoles with a 70.69 scoring average this year. Kjettrup’s scoring average would rank in the Top 10 in a single year in program history if the season ended today.

Kjettrup recently became the first Seminole ever to shoot three rounds at 64 or lower in his career in what is just his second year of playing. He earned his first collegiate win at the All-American Collegiate, co-winning the tournament after shooting 3-under in Houston, Texas. He is also on the Haskins Award Watch List.

He becomes the fifth Seminole to compete for the International team, joining Blixt (2007 and 2008), Caron (2015), Ellis (2017) and Norrman (2020).

Kjettrup and the Seminoles prepare for the upcoming ACC Men’s Golf Championship held at Shark’s Tooth Golf Club in Panama City, Fla., from April 22-25. The Seminoles enter the tournament as a No. 6 seed and are one of six ACC schools ranked in the Golfstat Top 25 (24th), joining North Carolina (fifth), Georgia Tech (11th), Notre Dame (13th), Wake Forest (17th) and Clemson (23rd).

The top six golfers from the final Palmer Cup Ranking from both the United States and International men and women are among the individuals selected to compete. Longtime Arnold Palmer partner Rolex is continuing its 50-plus year relationship through its support of the matches.
