When Max Rottluff set off to compete in the 2015 Palmer Cup, he knew it was a life-changing opportunity.
Hosted west of Chicago, the Palmer Cup annually puts on one of the most exciting shows in amateur golf as United States and European teams face off in Ryder Cup-style match play. The 22-year-old German had secured his spot alongside Arizona State teammate Jon Rahm on the underdog European team, facing off against a United States team that included future PGA TOUR players Ollie Schniederjans and Beau Hossler.
What Rottluff couldn’t have anticipated were the relationships formed outside of competition and how those bonds would impact him years down the road.
