Two-time USA player (1060, ’62) and twice captain (1986, ’88), Judy Bell, was assigned to look after Harriot Curtis at the 1970 match at Brae Burn C.C. Several people, including Bell and Curtis, were to stand at a clubhouse window and watch the players tee off on the first hole. Harriot suddenly disappeared and Bell then saw her below, heading down the 18th hole. “Oh no, no, Miss Curtis, the match is going down the first,” Judy said. “Oh, no,” Harriot said. “I want to see the 17th, where I beat Margaret.” Harriot was heading to the green where she had closed out her sister Margaret, 2 and 1, to win the 1906 U.S. Women’s Amateur.
