NAIRN, SCOTLAND (AP) - Britain and Ireland captain Tegwen Matthews is confident her eight-woman team can halt the United States’ domination of the biennial Curtis Cup that begins Friday.

The 37th edition of the event between the two teams of female amateur golfers opens with three foursomes matches on the Nairn Golf Club course, east of Inverness in northern Scotland.

Since the inaugural encounter in 1932, the U.S. has won 28 of the 36 Curtis Cups contested, including the past seven.

Matthews, who played in four prior Curtis Cup matches, believes the key to winning back the trophy is getting off to a good start.
