2016 Curtis Cup Winner and Match Scores

This was the 39th time the Curtis Cup was played, and following the Team GB&I victory the overall series standing was 29 wins for Team USA, 10 for GB&I.

Final Score: Great Britain & Ireland 11.5, United States 8.5

Dates Played: June 10-12, 2016

Location: Dun Laoghaire Golf Club in Enniskerry, Ireland

Team Captains: Robin Burke (USA) and Elaine Farquharson-Black (GB&I)

Team Rosters: USA — Sierra Brooks, Mariel Galdiano, Andrea Lee, Mika Liu, Hannah O'Sullivan, Bailey Tardy, Monica Vaughn, Bethany Wu. GB&I — Maria Dunne, Alice Hewson, Bronte Law, Meghan MacLaren, Leona Maguire, Olivia Mehaffey, Rochelle Morris, Charlotte Thomas.

Notes: The teams were tied following Day 1's play, but Team GB&I took an 8-4 lead on Day 2. That included sweeping the Day 2 afternoon fourballs. ... Team USA won the final singles session, by only by a point, not enough to overcome GB&I's big lead. ... Bronte Law became the first GB&I golfer — and just the second overall after Stacy Lewis at the 2008 Curtis Cup — to post a perfect 5-0-0 record.
