Four Trojans Picked To Selective Practice Session For Curtis Cup
Dec. 16, 2013
Four USC women's golfers, including three from the team's 2013 NCAA title squad, are among 14 top U.S. amateurs that have been invited to participate in a practice session for the prestigious 2014 Curtis Cup match, the USGA announced Monday (Dec. 16).
Junior Doris Chen, sophomores Annie Park and Kyung Kim and freshman Karen Chung were the four Trojans chosen to take part in the practice session scheduled for Jan. 31-Feb. 2 at Champions G.C. in Houston. The 2014 Curtis Cup Match is scheduled for June 6-8 at St. Louis (Mo.) C.C.
Chen, Kim and Park were members of USC's 2013 national title team. Park became the seventh freshman to claim the individual title and only the second woman in NCAA history to sweep conference, regional and national individual titles. Kim earned All-American first team honors last year while Chen was a second teamer. Chung posted a pair of top10 finishes in her first semester of collegiate play as the top-ranked Trojans won their first four events this fall and extended their school-record win streak to seven.
The Curtis Cup Match is contested by two teams of female amateur players, one from the United States of America and one from Great Britain and Ireland (England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales). The USGA's International Team Selection Committee selects the USA Team, while the Ladies Golf Union selects the GB&I Team.
