ST. LOUIS – Mariah Stackhouse's United States squad won three singles matches and halved a fourth on Sunday to regain the Curtis Cup, 13-7, and cap a dominant week over Great Britain and Ireland (GB&I) at St. Louis Country Club.  

Stackhouse, of Riverdale, Ga., carried a 1-up lead over Eilidh Briggs of Scotland, to the 18th. However, Stackhouse's double bogey after going long over the green halved the match.

The winning point came courtesy of 2013 U.S. Women's Amateur champion Emma Talley. Playing in the opening singles match, the 20-year old from Princeton, Ky., made a three-foot par putt on the 15th green to defeat England's Bronte Law, 4&3.

The Curtis Cup Match is a biennial competition between the USA and GB&I that dates back to 1932 and is conducted by the United States Golf Association and Ladies Golf Union.

A point is awarded for each victory and a half-point goes to each side for a draw. GB&I needed 10 points to retain the Cup, while the USA needed 10.5 points to regain the Cup. Each team consists of eight female amateur golfers.
