The practice session will take place from January 29th to 30th, just before the UCF Challenge, a major women’s college golf event, runs across the road at Eagle Creek Golf Club.

The following 12 players have accepted the invitation to the practice session.

  • Allisen Corpuz, 22 years old, Honolulu, Hawaii (USC)

The Curtis Cup was originally scheduled to be held at the Conwy Golf Club in Wales on June 12-14, 2020, but was postponed to August 26-28, 2021 at the same venue due to the global epidemic. ..

The practice team roster includes only one junior player, Rose Jean, who is currently at the top of the World Amateur Golf Rankings and is the winner of the 2020 US Women’s Amateur. Eight of the twelve women, including Zhang, were also invited to a practice session last December. This time, only Kuehn, Matthews, Schofill, and Swann have been added.

Invitation to a practice session does not guarantee the final spot for the eight-woman US team. Auto-selection, if qualified, goes to the active US Women’s Amateur Champion, along with the winner of the Mark H. McCormack and the top three players in the World Amateur Golf Rankings for Women (chosen on the day of the decision). The 2021 US Women’s Amateur Championship will be held at the Westchester Country Club in Rye, NY from August 2nd to 8th, after which Mark H. McCormack medal winners will be nominated.

Three-time US Women’s Mid-Amateur Champion (1991, 1993, 1994) and a member of the three USA Curtis Cup teams (1992, 1994, 1996), Salinegram said when Americans tried to keep the cup. I will be the captain.
