Curtis Cup race heats up in Troon

2014 04 145886772

With the Curtis Cup at St Louis Country Club just weeks away, the battle for places is set to reach boiling point at the Helen Holm Scottish Open Strokeplay Championship this weekend in Troon.


Taking place between April 25 and 27, it ha been 12 years since the prestigious event had a home winner, but this year’s strong line-up includes a host of promising Scottish talent.

Scottish Champion Alyson McKechin, 2013 SLGA Order of Merit winner Eilidh Briggs will be vying for the title, while Connie Jaffrey, the SLGA’s 2013 Order of merit and Scottish Girls’ champion will also be playing.

The championship has attracted players from around the globe, including Venezuela, Switzerland, Germany, France and Slovenia, but it will be the Great Britain and Ireland players that will be desperate to stake their claim for a place in the Curtis Cup line-up.

Teams of female amateur golfers from the United States and Great Britain and Ireland contest the biennial match, and GB&I captain Tegwen Matthews will be hoping to retain the trophy that her side won at Nairn in 2012.

The United States has already announced eight of the players that will compete in the Curtis Cup in St Louis, and none of them are older than the age of 21. Those already in the US team are:

Kyung Kim (University of Southern California); Alison Lee (University of California); Erynne Lee (University of California); Ally McDonald (Mississippi State University); Ally Park (University of Southern California); Ashlan Ramsey (Clemson University); Mariah Stackhouse (Stanford University); Emma Talley (University of Alabama).
