What wonderful news came to me whilst playing golf in Tenerife!! The news being that P&K squad member Carly Booth had been selected for the Curtis Cup Team which will be played at St Andrews this year. Carly, at 15, becomes the youngest ever player to be selected for a GB&I Curtis Cup team. The previous youngest was Jane Connachan from Musselburgh when she made her debut at the age of 16 in 1980.
This is a fantastic honour for Carly and one which she is more than ready to accept. She has already been part of the Junior Ryder Cup team and playing against the United States will not intimidate our Carly at all in fact it will probably inspire her!
Carly's response when hearing the news was 'Awesome, Awesome, Awesome'!! We all send Carly our heart felt congratulations and look forward to seeing her at St. Andrews!

Liz Bennett (Brokenhurst Manor) 25, Carly Booth (Comrie) 15, Krystle Caithness (St Regulus) 19, Jodi Ewart (Catterick) 20, Breanne Loucks (Wrexham) 20, Florentyna Parker (Royal Birkdale) 18, Michele Thomson (McDonald Ellon) 19, Sally Watson (Elie & Earlsferry Ladies) 16.
