Chico State senior golfer Aldistair Docherty will take his game overseas this summer.

The Washington native will represent Team USA in the Arnold Palmer Cup, a Ryder Cup style competition featuring the best collegiate players from the United States and Europe facing off against one another.

Docherty, the only Division-Two representative on the 10-man U.S team, is the second Wildcat golfer to play in the prestigious event that will take place June 24-26 in England. J.J Jakovac earned a spot on the squad in 2004.

Docherty is the No. 1 ranked golfer in Division-Two, according to Golfstat.

He's helped lead the Wildcats to the No. 1 ranking in the nation heading into the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Championships this Monday through Wednesday.
