The United States will have plenty of experience at the helm during the 2024 Curtis Cup.
The USGA announced Tuesday that four-time Women’s Mid-Am champion Meghan Stasi would captain the 2024 U.S. Curtis Cup team. The biennial competition pits the top female amateur golfers from the U.S. against the best from Great Britain and Ireland (GB&I), and will be at Sunningdale Golf Club in England.
“Meghan is one of the top amateur players of her generation, and her impact on the women’s amateur game is substantial,” John Bodenhamer, USGA chief championships officer, said in a release. “It was clear to us that Meghan becoming captain of our USA team was a matter of when, not if, and we’re thrilled she has agreed to take on the role in 2024.”
Stasi was a member of the victorious 2008 Curtis Cup Team at St. Andrews. Stasi’s four U.S. Women’s Mid-Am titles are tied for the most in the championship’s 35-year history. She won back-to-back titles in 2006 and 2007 before winning again in 2010 and 2012.
“My experience in 2008 with the Curtis Cup team was incredibly meaningful and rewarding; being asked to fill the role of captain is humbling,” Stasi said. “I’ve had the opportunity to attend the match and be around the teams the last two years in Wales and at Merion, and the level of talent and poise these amateur golfers have is inspiring and infectious to be around. I can’t wait to begin this journey and most of all, be part of the USA team again.”
In 2021, Stasi became the youngest individual ever inducted into the Florida State Golf Association (FSGA) Hall of Fame. To date, she has won 17 FSGA titles, including two Florida Women’s Amateurs and five Florida Women’s Mid-Amateurs. Stasi is an eight-time FSGA Player of the Year.
The U.S. won the 2022 Curtis Cup at Merion Golf Club for its third straight victory. The USA leads the overall series, 31-8-3.
