Castlewarden's Lauren Walsh has been named on the Great Britain and Ireland team for the 2022 Curtis Cup matches.

Walsh will be part of an eight-strong team that will take on USA at the historic Merion Golf Club from 10-12 June.

This will be Walsh's second appearance in the Curtis Cup, as she was part of last year's GB&I side that lost in Conwy 12.5 - 7.5.

Speaking from America today, Walsh told Golf Ireland she was looking forward to competing in Merion.

"I'm delighted to be selected again for my second Curtis Cup. Last year's competition in Conwy was one of the best weeks of my life.

"I'm very excited to have the opportunity to play in a Curtis Cup on American soil. It'll be a different style of golf to what we played in Wales. I cant wait to get to Merion."

Kirkistown Castle's Beth Coulter has been selected as second reserve, after being selected in the extended original squad.

Elaine Ratcliffe will captain the GB&I team again and is looking forward to travelling to America with a string squad.

“I would like to congratulate these eight players on their selection to the Great Britain and Ireland team. The Curtis Cup is one of the highlights of the amateur game and I know they will all put in their best performances at Merion.

“I am delighted to have six of the girls from last year back in the team for the 2022 match and I believe this gives us a strong base to build upon. The two new players to the team will strengthen that talent base and we very much look forward to an exciting match.”
