First Three Players Named to 2024 USA Curtis Cup Team

The top three Americans in the Women’s World Amateur Golf Ranking®/WAGR® as of July 10 have earned places on the 2024 USA Curtis Cup Team. They are: Zoe Campos, 21, of Valencia, Calif.; Catherine Park, 19, of Irvine, Calif.; and Jasmine Koo, 18, of Cerritos, Calif. The three will compete against Great Britain and Ireland in the 43rd Curtis Cup Match Aug. 30-Sept. 1 at Sunningdale Golf Club in England.

The remaining five players will be chosen by the USGA’s International Team Selection working group prior to the three-day international competition. The winners of the 2024 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship (Aug. 5-11 at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Okla.) and the 2024 McCormack Medal will also receive automatic selections, if American.

“Zoe and Catherine are two of the top collegian players in the world and have had incredible performances this year both in NCAA competition, and at top amateur tournaments. And Jasmine’s career as a junior golfer, inclusive of winning the Women’s Western, is one of the best we’ve seen in some time,” said Meghan Stasi, four-time USGA champion who is serving as the USA captain. “I look forward to watching them contribute to our team and have the opportunity to compete for our country on this international stage.”

Campos, currently ranked No. 5 in WAGR, is a rising senior at UCLA. She has earned All-Pac-12 First-Team honors the last two seasons, and last year led the Bruins with four individual wins and a 70.7 scoring average.  

Park, who is coming off sharing low-amateur honors in the 2024 U.S. Women’s Open Presented by Ally, is a rising junior at the University of Southern California. She won the individual 2024 Pac-12 title in the spring, her third win of the 2023-24 season, and is currently a career-high No. 7 in WAGR.  

Koo, No. 8 in WAGR, is an incoming freshman for USC who will team up with Park this fall. She made her Augusta National Women’s Amateur debut in April, finishing fourth with a 2-under 70 in the final round. The 2023 Women’s Western Amateur champion also tied for third in the Girls' Junior Invitational at Sage Valley in South Carolina in March.

The Curtis Cup Match is contested by two teams of eight female amateur players, one from the United States of America and one from Great Britain and Ireland, which is composed of England, the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The USGA’s International Team Selection working group selects the USA Team, while The R&A selects the GB&I Team. The Americans have won the last three matches (2018, 2021, 2022) and lead the overall series 31-8-3.
