The Curtis Cup is one of the most prestigious events in women’s amateur golf. The tournament pits golfers from Great Britain and Ireland against players from the US. This week the event returned to the course where its founders learned the game. To listen to Doug Tribou’s story about the Cup’s rich history click on the link above (after 8:30am Eastern, Saturday). While you listen, check out the photos he took during the opening round.
