GB&I defeat U.S. in the Curtis Cup

Meghan MacLaren’s winning point sealed an historic win

Great Britain and Ireland won the Curtis Cup after overcoming a resurgent USA to win 11 1/2 - 8 1/2 at Dun Laoghaire Golf Club.

After claiming five of the six points on day two, they needed just two-and-a-half points from Sunday’s eight singles for victory at Dun Laoghaire Golf Club.

Bailey Tardy, Monica Vaughn and Andrea Lee all secured wins for the Americans.

But Meghan MacLaren held on to defeat USA’s Bethany Wu at the 17th and secure the winning point for GB & Ireland.

A win for Leona Maguire over Sienna Brooks and a half-point from Olivia Mehaffey against world number one Hannah O’Sullivan had put the hosts on the verge of victory.

 “I was on a mission to win my point, to send a message to the players behind,” Leona Maguire said.

Bronte Law became the second player in Curtis Cup history to go 5-0, beating Mika Liu 2 up on Sunday.

“The team was just incredible,” said Law, the Annika Award winner this year as the top U.S. college player. “For me, coming into this, a lot of people had written us off. ... For me to end it this way -- it’s probably going to be my last Curtis Cup - is just a dream. I am so proud to just represent my country.”

It was only their second win in the last 10 contests
