Megha Ganne, the 17-year-old high school student of Indian origin who made headlines at the 2021 US Women’s Open, was part of the U.S. Team at the Curtis Cup, the biannual Ryder Cup style match between amateur lady teams from USA and Great Britain & Ireland. The prestigious event which has featured many legendary names of Women’s Golf History during its 90 year history was played at the iconic Merion Golf Club in Pennsylvania this past week. Ganne was undefeated in the event, winning all three of her matches for a 3-0 record. 

She took part in two four-ball matches, teaming up with Amari Avery both times. The pair beat Hannah Darling and Annabell Fuller 2 & 1 on Saturday after beating Caley McGinty and Lauren Walsh by 3 & 2 on Friday. 

Ganne then went on to beat Amelia Williamson 2 & 1 in her singles match on Sunday. The U.S team, which needed to win two of the 10 singles matches on the final day to win the Cup for the third straight time, won seven of them to trounce the Great Britain and Ireland team 15.5 to 4.5. 

This is the first-time that Ganne, who has committed to play college golf at Stanford University, has represented the U.S. at the Curtis Cup. Prior to this, she played in the junior Solheim Cup in 2021, where her U.S. team was beaten 13-11 by team Europe  at Sylvania Country Club in Ohio.
