Hannah Darling sank a memorable match-winning putt as Great Britain and Ireland got off to a dream start on the opening day of the 2021 Curtis Cup at Conwy.

The Scot holed her birdie attempt at the 18th to earn victory in the afternoon fourballs and help Elaine Radcliffe’s team to a threepoint lead at 4½ to 1½ over the USA – their biggest ever advantage after day one.

Darling had been paired alongside fellow Scot Louise Duncan in the morning foursomes where they shared the point with US duo Rose Zhang and Rachel Heck.

She then teamed up with England’s Annabell Fuller for the afternoon fourballs and after starting the 18th all square against Heck and Emilia Migliaccio, Darling made sure of the win with an 18-foot putt for birdie
