ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Alabama's Emma Talley wrapped up the United States' Curtis Cup victory Sunday, beating Britain and Ireland's Bronte Law 4 and 3 in the opening singles match at St. Louis Country Club.
The United States won 13-7 to improve to 28-7-3 in the biennial competition, rebounding from a 10 1/2-9 1/2 loss in 2012 at Nairn in Scotland -- the Americans' only loss since 1996.
After Stanford's Mariah Stackhouse and Mississippi State's Ally McDonald halved their rain-delayed foursomes match with Stephanie Meadow and Georgia Hall, the United States needed only one point in the eight singles matches to regain the cup. Talley, the U.S. Women's Amateur champion from Princeton, Kentucky, was quick to provide it.
McDonald and Southern California's Annie Park also won singles matches for the U.S, and Stackhouse, the first black player in U.S. Curtis Cup history, halved her match.
