Before embarking on a Wednesday afternoon practice round at Essex County Club, members of the USA Curtis Cup Team spent a few minutes decorating the team van and golf carts used by Captain Noreen Mohler and the USGA’s Donna Mummert, the team manager.
Jessica Korda, Tiffany Lua, Stephanie Kono and Jennifer Song painted “Go USA” and USA All The Way” using red, white and blue markers. In keeping with the patriotic theme, the artwork also included red, white and blue stars, and an American flag.
“Ðo they do this at the Walker Cup?” quipped Mohler, a Woburn, Mass., native who is enjoying a homecoming this week in the Boston area. “We’re having way too much fun.”
Korda and Lua provided most of the artwork. The cart decorations included red, white and blue streamers and American flags.
The Great Britain and Ireland team cart also featured the Union Jack and the Irish flag.
Team USA got away from the golf course on Wednesday morning, taking a duck tour on the Charles River.
Both teams are going through their final preparations for the three-day Match that begins on Friday morning.
