Captains Ellen Port and Tegwen Matthews submitted their pairings for the Friday morning Four-Ball Matches, which will tee off at 8am at St. Louis CC.

The first match will feature reigning U.S. Women's Amateur champion Emma Talley, from Alabama, squaring off against her teammate Stephanie Meadow, playing for the GB&I.  Joining Talley will be Stanford's Mariah Stackhouse.  England's Georgia Hall, winner of the 2013 British Women's championship, will partner with Meadow. Stackhouse has earned four collegiate titles and was All-Pac-12 and a NCAA All-American. She was also a member of the winning 2009 USGA Women's State Team. In addition to sinking the winning putt to clinch the 2012 Curtis Cup for GB&I, Meadow was the 2012 Ladies British Amateur Open champion.  At Alabama, she has recorded nine collegiate wins and set numerous team records.

The second group has UCLA's Alison Lee and USC's Kyung Kim for the USA side facing Tulane's Gemma Dryburgh and 17-year-old Annabel Dimmock for the GB&I Team. Lee captured two collegiate titles in 2014 and won the Pac-12 individual title.  Kim is the defending U.S. Public Links champion.  Dryburgh finished second at the 2013 British Stroke Play championship, while Dimmock won the Jones Doherty Cup this season. They will tee off at 8:15am.

The final morning group will have USC's Annie Park and Mississippi State's Ally McDonald representing the USA, while Charlotte Hall, who plays at the University of Washington, and UCLA's Bronte Law for the GB&I.  Law was on the victorious 2012 Curtis Cup Team from GB&I and won the Cartier Trophy at the 2013 French Junior championship.  Hall, who hails from Singapore won the English Mid-Amateur title in 2013. Park, a freshman at USC, won the NCAA Division I individual title in 2013 and captured another four collegiate wins.  McDonald captured the 2013 North & South Women's Amateur and was the first MSU player since 1995 to earn first-team All-American honors.
