We’re about to commence the second day of the 2010 Curtis Cup Match. We have some interesting pairings for the Saturday morning four-ball matches.
For the USA, the “Kiddie Korps” of Alexis Thompson, 15, and Jessica Korda, 17, are once again a team. They earned a half-point on Friday in foursomes, but were broken up for four-balls. They face the formidable team of Danielle McVeigh and Pamela Pretswell. McVeigh, at 22, is the elder stateswoman of the Match and owns a 1-0-1 record.
Great Britain and Ireland Captain Mary McKenna paired up the 15-year-old Irish twins, Leona and Lisa Maguire. They face Jennifer Song and Cydney Clanton.
The third four-ball match has a Hawaiian theme with Stephanie Kono and Kimberly Kim paired against Sally Watson and Rachel Jennings.
GB&I takes a one-point lead into Day 2, but six points are up for grabs today.
I just hope the golf and drama is matched from Friday’s two sessions.
And hopefully we’ll get equally nice weather. So far things look good.
