Kevin Phelan (Ireland) of North Florida and Nova Southeastern's Ben Taylor (England) were committee selections. Gary Hurley of NIU Maynooth (Ireland) qualified for Team Europe by winning The R&A Foundation Scholars' Tournament. Arkansas' Sebastian Cappelen was coach Andrew Coltart's coach's pick.

California's Michael Kim led the six U.S. players selected by the Palmer Cup Ranking. He was joined by North Florida's Sean Dale, Patrick Rodgers of Stanford, New Mexico's James Erkenbeck, Alabama's Cory Whitsett and Cal's Michael Weaver off the ranking. Committee selections were Daniel Berger of Florida State, Abilene Christian's Alex Carpenter and Alabama's Justin Thomas. Bobby Wyatt of Alabama was coach Jay Seawell's coach's pick.
