Emma Talley Begins Play in the Curtis Cup Today
2013 U.S. Women's Amateur champion Emma Talley begins play today in the Curtis Cup at the St. Louis Country Club. The Curtis Cup is a team competition for the top women's amateur golfers in the U.S. and Great Britain and Ireland.
The former Caldwell County golfer, who just wrapped up her sophomore year at the University of Alabama, will team with Stanford's Mariah Stackhouse in today's four-ball event.
The teams will combine to play four-ball, foursomes, and a singles match over the next three days to determine the team winner.
The first Curtis Cup was played in 1932, and the U.S. won seven straight events before losing the cup two years ago in Scotland.
Talley began the week as the 18th ranked women's amateur golfer in the world and number seven in the U.S.
