FAYETTEVILLE — University of Arkansas All-American golfer Mateo Fernandez de Oliveira will continue his tremendous junior season with a career highlight this weekend at the Arnold Palmer Cup.

Fernandez de Oliveira, of Buenos Aires, Argentina, will play for Team International in the 26th annual Palmer Cup teeing off today in Geneva.

The No. 31 player in the World Amateur Golf rankings and the first Argentinian to play in the Palmer Cup, he cemented his spot in the event by winning the South America Amateur Championship in January. Fernandez de Oliveira followed that up with a runner-up showing in the Latin America Amateur the next week.
