The R&A have this week announced their squads for the 2021 Vagliano Trophy and Curtis Cup teams. The squad consists of the top 17 amateur lady golfers in GB & I and we are delighted that Hazel MacGarvie (Royal Troon) has been included in the squad.
Hazel, who turned 21 in October, is the 3rd ranked Scottish player in the World Amateur Golf Rankings behind fellow squad members Hannah Darling, Broomieknowe, and Shannon McWilliam, Aboyne.
The Vagliano is a biennial match between GB&I and the Continent of Europe, Hazel played in the team at Royal St George's in 2019 and was unbeaten with an impressive 3.5 points out of 4. Next years match is due to take place in Switzerland from 25-26 June.
The Curtis Cup was due to be played this year but for obvious reasons had to be postponed. It is due to take place in Wales from 26-28 August.
We all wish Hazel well for the final team selection.
