NAIRN, Scotland - After starting with a 3-0 lead, Duke University senior Lindy Duncan and the United States has struggled the last 36 hours at the 2012 Curtis Cup as Great Britain and Ireland has won five and a half out of the last eight and a half points, but the U.S. holds a 6 1/2-5 1/2 advantage with one day remaining at the Nairn Golf Club in Nairn, Scotland.

Great Britain and Ireland netted two and a half points in the afternoon on Saturday as Holly Clyburn and Kelly Tidy downed Emily Tubert and Amy Anderson, 1-up.  Stephanie Meadow and Pamela Pretswell of GB&I also defeated Tiffany Lua and Erica Popson, 2-up.  Brooke Pancake and Austin Ernst were able to get a halve against Leona Maguire and Bronte Law.  Duncan, who is out of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., took a break during the afternoon round. 

In the morning’s foursomes round, the USA captured two points to GB&I’s one. Anderson and Lua cruised to a 3-and-2 victory over Pretswell and Charley Hull, while Ernst and Pancake earned a 2-up victory over Clyburn and Amy Boulden.

Meadow and Maguire atoned for Friday’s 5-and-4 drubbing at the hands of Duncan and Lisa McCloskey and never trailed en route to a 3-and-1 rematch victory.

The Curtis Cup concludes with eight singles matches on Sunday with Duncan taking on Charley Hull. 

A point is awarded for each victory and a half-point goes to each side for a draw. The USA, winners of the last seven contests in the biennial series, needs 10 points to retain the Cup, while GB&I needs 10.5 points to regain the Cup.

The Curtis Cup Match is conducted by the United States Golf Association and the Ladies Golf Union.
