2000 Curtis Cup Winner and Match Scores

The 2000 Curtis Cup was the 31st time this tournament was played. Following Team USA's victory, the all-time standings were 22 wins for Team USA, six for GB&I, and three ties.

Final Score: United States 10, Great Britain & Ireland 8

Dates Played: June 24-25, 2000

Location: Ganton Golf Club in North Yorkshire, England

Team Captains: Jane Bastanchury Booth for the United States and Claire Dowling for Great Britain & Ireland

Team Rosters:

  • USA — Beth Bauer, Leland Beckel, Virginia Derby Grimes, Hilary Homeyer, Stephanie Keever, Angela Stanford, Carol Semple Thompson, Robin Weiss
  • GB&I — Kim Andrew, Becky Brewerton, Fiona Brown, Emma Duggleby, Rebecca Hudson, Becky Morgan, Lesley Nicholson, Suzanne O'Brien

Notes: Team USA built a big lead on Day 1 of the 2000 Curtis Cup, then needed that cushion on Day 2. USA led 7-2 after Day 1, but Team GB&I rallied to win the second day 6-3, which resulted in the USA's final 2-point margin of victory.

Two U.S. teammates later faced off (along with a third golfer) in a U.S. Women's Open playoff. Hilary Homeyer, later known by her married name, Hilary Lunke, defeated Angela Stanford (and Kelly Robbins) in an 18-hole playoff to win the 2003 U.S. Women's Open.

Homeyer went 3-1-0 for USA (Stanford was 1-3-0), while Suzanne O'Brien was 3-1-0 for GB&I.
