GB & I have created history in storming to success in the CurtisCup at Nairn in Scotland.
The host team headed into the Sunday Singles trailing 5 ½ points to 6 ½ point and needing to win five of the eight Singles matches.
They achieved that to brush aside their rivals for a 10 ½ to 9 ½ victory.
It was Northern Ireland’s Stephanie Meadow, a member at the same Royal Portrush Club as past US Open champion, Graeme McDowell, who delivered victory to GB & I winning her match against Amy Anderson after the American missed a 15-foot par putt to conceed the match.
It’s the first time in16-years GB & I has won the Curtis Cup and ended a seven event domination by the Americans.
It also now ensures GB& I and Europe now hold the Curtis Cup and men’s amateur Walker Cup alongwith the respective pro team Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup, a feat that has never been achieved before.
