Team golf is the best golf. Pretty much that’s the credo of those who play elite amateur championships like the recent 76th annual Women’s International Four-ball in Wellington, Fla.
One snafu, of course, is when your partner has a conflict and can’t play. (They’re amateurs, remember? They do have jobs that take priority.) Fortunately for Sue Curtin of Westwood, Mass., who normally would have played with Chelsea Curtis of Boston, a managing partner of Seaport Consulting, all the stars aligned and she was able to join up with Megan Grehan of Rye, N.Y., for what turned out to be a positive championship.
With rounds of 71-72, Curtin and Grehan finished joint sixth in the tournament at The Wanderer’s Club, which played at 6,010 yards. Ina Kim-Schaad and Meghan Stasi cruised to a three-stroke win at 131, but the tournament was notable for the solid efforts by Curtin and other New Englanders.
