[June 11, 2010]  MANCHESTER-BY-THE-SEA, Mass. (AP) -- The Curtis Cup is home this weekend, and that is expected to make the United States even tougher to beat.

The 36th biennial competition between teams of eight amateur female golfers from the United States and Great Britain and Ireland will be held at Essex County Club. The Americans are riding a six-match winning streak and hold a 26-6-3 overall advantage.

Essex County Club also happens to be the home course of sisters Harriot and Margaret Curtis, who established the competition in 1932. The competition was also held at the club in 1938.

The three-day event begins Friday with three foursome matches in the morning and three more four-ball matches in the afternoon and concludes Sunday with eight singles matches.
