Mid-Am Provides Zero Scoring For USA at Curtis Cup
Meghan Bolger has won two consecutive USGA women’s mid-amateur championships. On the International Level, that means nothing. Bolger was the only USA player to 0 for the week at St. Andrews during the 2008 Curtis Cup, decided today in the USA’s favor, 13-7.
The Curtis Cup was extended to three days this year, bringing it into equity with all other international team events. Bolger competed in two pairs matches and lost both. Her two partners in those matches, Amanda Blumenhurst and Tiffany Joh, lost NO OTHER matches during the event. Blumenhurst went 3.5-.5 with only one halved match, while Joh went 3-0 in her matches.
Sorry to say, USGA, unless the mid amateur has a reputable record in the USGA Amateur, don’t select her for the Curtis Cup or World Amateur Team side.
