Ally McDonald To Tee Off In Curtis Cup Match For Team USA
STARKVILLE, Miss. – For the second time this season, Ally McDonald will represent the United States as she competes in the 2014 Curtis Cup Match on June 6-8 in St. Louis, Mo. at St. Louis Country Club.
The illustrious Curtis Cup Match is one of the top amateur events that pairs two amateur female teams, one from the United States and one from Great Britain and Ireland. The two teams will square off in six foursome (alternate-shot) matches, six four-ball matches and eight single matches over the next three days.
“I am so excited about representing the United States,” All-American McDonald said. “This weekend is going to be great, and I can not wait to experience it with this great team.”
McDonald is one of eight players on the Team USA squad, including Emma Talley from the University of Alabama and previous teammate Ashlan Ramsey from Clemson. Ramsey and McDonald teamed up to help the U.S. claim gold at the Spirit International Amateur Championships in November of last year.
“It’s a great time for Ally in the progression of her game,” fourth-year head coach Ginger Brown-Lemm said. “She is playing very well and continues to represent Mississippi State golf and our state with the highest performance and integrity. Now we get to share her with the U.S.”
Team USA leads the overall series, 27-7-3, but will be looking to bounce back from defeat in 2012.
McDonald and Team USA will begin the opening four-ball round at 8:00 a.m. CST Friday, followed by a foursome match in the afternoon round.
