Curtis Cup Comes to a Close, 2016

The Curtis Cup has come to an end with a fantastic GB&I victory over America, at Dun Laoghaire Golf Club. The final score was 11.5 to 8.5, even though the Americans won the final day singles 4.5 to 3.5.

One of the greatest results of all was Bronte Law's victory over Mika Liu, which saw her taking all five points from her five matches. She is the first GB&I player to achieve this feat... and only the second in the event's history, after Stacey Lewis achieved the same result at St. Andrew's in 2008.

You'll find details of the final day's play on the LGU website. Check out the dozen or so photos from today's
