The best female amateur golfers go head to head in a historic team event this week, with all three days of the Curtis Cup available to watch for free via Sky Sports Golf’s live YouTube stream.
The biennial contest sees Great Britain and Ireland take on their American counterparts over a format similar to those in operation at the Solheim Cup and Ryder Cup, with the 41st edition delayed by a year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Team USA arrive at Conwy Golf Club in Wales as defending champions after their convincing 17-3 victory in 2018, while Great Britain and Ireland are aiming to follow their victories in 2012 and 2016 to claim a third straight success on home soil.
The visitors have the stronger line-up in terms of world ranking, with five of the world’s amateur top 20 – including world No 1 Rose Zhang and world No 2 Rachel Heck – in the American side travelling to the UK.
Team GB&I hopes will be focused on Amateur Championship winner Louise Duncan, following her impressive top-10 finish at the AIG Women’s Open last weekend, while 2019 amateur champion Emily Toy and 2020 runner-up Annabell Fuller are also in action for the hosts.
The two teams will compete in foursomes and fourballs over the first two days, with three matches in each session on Friday, with all eight players from each team then competing in the singles on Saturday.
