Michelle Wie to become youngest Curtis Cup player

Teenage prodigy Michelle Wie became the youngest golfer selected for a U.S. Curtis Cup team when she was included in the eight-woman squad to compete in England later this year.

The 14-year-old American will break the record set by Laura Baugh, who was 16 when she was selected in 1972.

The 1.83-metre Hawaiian amateur, a prodigious striker of the ball, is already being hailed as the future Tiger Woods of the women's game.

Wie narrowly failed to become the first female to make the cut in a men's PGA Tour event at the Hawaiian Open last month after firing a second-round 68.

The Curtis Cup is held every two years, consisting of 12 singles and six foursomes matches. The United States, winners of the last three encounters, will compete against Britain and Ireland at Formby Golf Club in Merseyside from June 12-13.
