2014 06 450304576

The Curtis Cup is back in American hands following their 13-7 victory on home soil.


It was a tough final day for GB&I after falling 7-2 behind in the previous two days, leaving the GB&I team trying to claw back a 9.5-2.5 deficit on the final day to pull off an unlikely victory.

Scotland’s Gemma Dryburgh won her singles match one-up against Ashlan Ramsey, with Eilidh Briggs halving her tie with Mariah Stackhouse – the first black player to play in the Curtis Cup.

Elsewhere, Georgia Hall, Charlotte Thomas and Stephanie Meadow secured wins on the final day to soften the blow.
"That's a great way to finish and gives everyone a bit of a boost."

“I have to say, so proud of the girls for how they rallied all day today,” said GB&I captain,” Tegwen Mattews.

“More especially when they knew the match was gone, and yet they never gave up.  That could have put the chins really even further down.

“That's a great way to finish and gives everyone a bit of a boost to say the least from a pretty disastrous two days.”
"We just didn't hole any putts." - Tegwen Matthews, Curtis Cup captain

Matthew lamented her side’s poor display on the greens an ultimately recognised that her team’s putting was the difference.

“I think my girls hit the ball as well as, if not better than the Americans,” she said.

“Except they were holing more putts. We had the ability to do that. We just didn't hole any putts.”

Curtis Cup positives


She remained positive in the face of Curtis Cup defeat, and was happy with the experience her girls’ received.

“Even though we lost, they can go home knowing we won the singles on the last day, and that should make them a little bit taller and make them feel a little bit better going forward.”
