Emma Talley helped the United States cap a dominant week and regain the Curtis Cup from Great Britain and England Sunday.
The Princeton native and University of Alabama golfer clinched the win on the 15th hole of her singles match when she drained a three-foot putt to beat Bronte Law of England 4-and-3.

Talley went 3-0-1 over the weekend.
“This was the best week ever. I'm just happy to play with my friends and to do it for my country is even better,” she said.The 2016 Curtis Cup Match will be conducted at Dun Laoghaire Golf Club, outside of Dublin, Ireland.
Meanwhile, Talley will head to Pinehurst, North Carolina to play in the U.S. Women's Open June 19-22. It will be her third U.S. Open start.
