Weekend wrap-up (June 9)

Curtis Cup

The United States defeated Great Britain and Ireland to regain the Curtis Cup with a 13-7 win. AJGA alum Emma Talley clinched the victory after parring hole No. 15 at St. Louis Country Club. She would finish 3-0-1 on the week, leading a U.S. team consisting of all former AJGA players.

Talley, a four-time Rolex Junior All-American, amassed 10 AJGA victories in her successful junior career, tying her for ninth on the all-time list for most career individual wins in the AJGA Girls Record Book. She is also the reigning champion of the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship.

Mariah Stackhouse (2-0-2), Talley’s winning partner in Friday and Saturday four-ball, made headlines in her first Curtis Cup appearance.

Stackhouse, a three-time Rolex Junior All-American, notched four AJGA victories from 2009-11, including two at the AJGA Junior at Steelwood in both 2010 and 2011.

Inbee Park collected her 10th LPGA Tour win on Sunday with a victory at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic, finishing 23-under-par 261. Park shot a final round of 10-under-par 61 to capture the victory. She edged out fellow AJGA alum Cristie Kerr after leading Kerr by only one stroke entering the final round.

Park, the 2002 Rolex Junior Player of the Year, won eight AJGA titles from 2001-05. Her most notable victories came at the 2002 Rolex Girls Junior Championship and 2003 Rolex Tournament of Champions. Park holds five Rolex Junior All-America honors.
