A steady drizzle greeted both teams for Thursday’s final practice round before the 2010 Curtis Cup Match commences on Friday. Despite the inclement weather, both teams got out onto the golf course. In fact, the Great Britain and Ireland squad probably felt like they were back home. Fifteen-year-old twins Lisa and Leona Maguire said this is a typical day in Ireland.
Hopefully, the weather will clear up in time for the flag raising opening ceremony tonight. The opening ceremony for a Curtis Cup is very special and emotional. Pairings for the first session of foursomes also will be announced by the captains.
The good thing is Friday’s forecast is calling for sunny skies. The weekend also is looking OK, but there might be a pop-up thunderstorm each day.
