One of the finest Curtis Cup traditions is the cast of past players who come to each match. For them, this is a reunion of sorts. We’re privileged to again have Maureen Garrett, a member of the 1948 GB&I team, on the site. Garrett, who won the USGA’s Bob Jones Award for distinguished sportsmanship, is a great raconteur with a voluminous memory bank of Curtis Cup anecdotes. She seldom misses this Curtis Cup reunion, travelling from her home in Poole, England. Bridget Jackson, a member of the 1958, ’64 and ’68 GB&I teams, is also here. She was honored by Queen Elizabeth with the MBE, Member of the British Empire. On the American side we have three members of the 1958 team on hand, six-time Curtis Cup player Barbara McIntire, three-time USA player Ann Casey Johnstone and Meriam Bailey Leeke.
