Alabama sophomore Kristen Gillman and junior Lauren Stephenson are among eight women’s amateur golfers who will be members of the United States team that will face Great Britain & Ireland in the 2018 Curtis Cup, June 8-10, at Quaker Ridge Golf Club in Scarsdale, N.Y.
Stephenson and Gillman are ranked No. 6 and No. 8, respectively, in the World Amateur Golf Rankings.
First held in 1932, the Curtis Cup is a biennial women’s amateur competition pitting a team from the United States against a team from Great Britain and Ireland. The USGA’s International Team Selection Committee chose the U.S. squad.
Gillman and Stephenson will be the sixth and seventh Crimson Tide women’s golfers to compete in the Curtis Cup, joining U.S. selections Emma Talley (2014), Brooke Pancake (2012), Jenny Suh (2006) and Martha Lang (1992) and Great Britain & Ireland pick Stephanie Meadow (2012). Lang also served as the U.S. captain in 1996.
