Rolex Junior Player of the Year Paula Creamer of Pleasanton, Calif., won both of her singles matches (5 & 3, 3 & 2) to help the United States to victory in the 2004 Curtis Cup.

Newsmakers (June 13): U.S Curtis Cup Team, Garcia, Park All Winners

With a young squad of AJGA veterans, the U.S. Team retained the Curtis Cup on Sunday, edging Great Britain & Ireland, 10 and 8. The American side was led by former AJGA player Annie Thurman, who compiled a 3-1 record during the two-day event.

The U.S. Team got off to a rough start Saturday, losing all three foursome matches in the opening round. In the afternoon singles, however, they rallied to win five of six matches to take a 5-4 lead. Sunday morning brought about another rough foursome outing, as the GB&I Team won two out of three. Only Thurman and Brittany Lang managed to score a point for the United States. In Sunday’s singles matches, the U.S. Team dominated once again, winning four of six matches to seal the Cup.

AJGA alumnae on the team included: Thurman, Lang, Liz Janangelo, recent NCAA champion Sarah Huarte, Erica Blasberg, and current AJGA players Paula Creamer and Jane Park. Michelle Wie rounded out the team.

In men’s action, Jack Ferguson won the Sunnehanna Amateur, firing three rounds in the 60s to finish at 7-under-par for 54 holes. Ferguson earned a two-shot victory over fellow AJGA alum and runner-up Matthew Rosenfeld. In 1998, Ferguson fired a 7-under-par 63 during AJGA competition – a record at the time, although it has since been broken. Ferguson has been attending Clemson, where he was a 2003 NCAA All-America Second Teamer.

Along with Rosenfeld, two other AJGA alumni finished in the top-five: Nicholas Thompson (-3), who tied for third; and Michael Sims (E), who placed fifth.
Professional Update

Sergio Garcia won for the second time this season on the PGA TOUR Sunday, capturing the Buick Classic title in a sudden-death playoff with Rory Sabbatini and Padraig Harrington. The 24-year-old Garcia was named an honorable mention Rolex Junior All-American in 1998 after winning the Marsh Junior at Apawamis.

Grace Park was the low AJGA alum in the McDonald’s LPGA Championship. The 1996 Rolex Junior Player of the Year put together four rounds better than par (68-70-70-68–276) to finish third.


Two of Park’s record-setting 18 AJGA wins came at the McDonald’s Betsy Rawls Girls Championship.
