St Andrews to host 2008 Curtis Cup

St. Andrews will play host to the Curtis Cup, the women's amateur golf equivalent of the Ryder Cup, for the first time in 2008.

The Ladies Golf Union said Wednesday the history and tradition of St. Andrews made it an ideal venue for the international team competition between the United States and Great Britain & Ireland.

St. Andrews Links Trust general manager Alan McGregor said the 2008 event would take place June 7-8.

``It seems wholly appropriate that the foremost ladies' amateur match play tournament should be staged at the home of golf,'' McGregor said.

The United States has won 22 matches in the series, Britain & Ireland six, and three have been halved. Results have been much closer since 1984, with four wins each and one halved match.

This year's contest will be played Aug. 3-4 at Fox Chapel Golf Club in Pittsburgh.
