It was an Irish one two, as the mens event was won by Ronan Mullarney from Maynooth. 

Ryan and Mullarney will now represent the 'Rest of the World' at the 2018 Arnold Palmer Cup. The annual Ryder Cup-style competition will be played July 6-8 at Evian Resort Golf Club. The 2018 Arnold Palmer Cup will be the first using the expanded format of United States men’s and women’s collegiate golfers versus their counterparts from around the world.
