Washington freshmen Wenyung Keh and Julianne Alvarez earned spots on the 12-person Asia-Pacific team that will face Europe for the first edition of the Patsy Hankins Trophy on Wednesday through Friday at Vidago Palace Golf Course in Portugal. The pair are New Zealand’s two representatives on the team that will take on the European squad.

The format for the three-day tournament, which consists of two 12-person teams representing Europe and Asia-Pacific, will consist of two days of five foursome matches each morning and five four-ball matches each afternoon. On the final day, all 12 team players will compete in singles match play. A win will count as one point, a tie yields half a point and a lost match will return zero.
