Posted December 30, 2008 - Western Pennsylvania Golf Association - Contact

Peggy Runnette, Fox Chapel GC, will conclude her service with the USGA Women's Committee during the Association's Annual Meeting at Newport Beach, California, on February 7, 2009. Among her highlights is certainly the 2002 Curtis Cup she chaired at Fox Chapel, Peggy's home club. The Curtis Cup is the international match between the United States and Great Britain/Ireland, played every two years. In a close competition, Sewickley's Carol Semple Thompson holed a 27 foot birdie-putt on the 18th hole to win her match and clinch the Curtis Cup for USA. Runnette's USGA involvement includes being the official-in-charge of numerous area qualifying rounds for both the USGA Women's Open and Women's Amateur.
