PAMELA PRETSWELL is set to produce some amateur dramatics in this weekend's Curtis Cup, having taken the spotlight on the pro stage.
The Bothwell Castle golfer forms part of an eight-strong GB&I team for the biennial clash with the USA, which tees-off tomorrow at Nairn.
Pretswell, 23, has been warming up by competing against the professionals on the Ladies European Tour's Access Series.
She showed her class by becoming the first amateur to win on the developmental circuit in Sweden last month.
Pretswell, the lone Scot in the squad, played in the 2010 Curtis Cup in America and admitted the occasion got to her.
She said: "Playing with the pros has been great and has improved my game and hammered home the importance of every shot.
"My performances on the tour have helped my confidence going into this week. When I played in 2010, I was nervous. I have learned my lesson and will be drawing on my experience from 2010 and from playing in the Access events to make sure that doesn't happen again."
Pretswell knows that the home team face a tough task against a classy US outfit.
