The Solheim Cup, a competition between the U.S. and European women’s golf teams, will be held. Attention is being paid to whether Europe will win for the third time in a row at home or whether the United States will succeed in regaining its honor on the road.
The Solheim Cup opens on the 22nd (Korean time) at the Finca Cortesin Golf Course in Casares, Malaga Province, Spain. This competition, founded in 1990, celebrates its 18th anniversary this year. In terms of historical record, the United States has the upper hand with 10 wins and 7 losses. However, in the recent matchup, Europe is actually ahead, winning twice in a row. Following the 16th tournament held in Scotland in 2019, Europe also won the 17th trip to the United States in 2021.
In the Solheim Cup, 12 players from each team participate in foursomes (two players take turns hitting one ball) and fourball (two players each play a ball and the best score is considered the team score) matches on the 1st and 2nd days. A single match is held on the last day. Each match is awarded 1 point for a win, and 0.5 points for a tie, and the team with the highest combined score wins
It is currently difficult to determine the superiority and inferiority of the two teams in terms of power and momentum. The United States, led by General Manager Stacey Lewis, had top-ranked players on the roster, including Lilia Bu (#2 in the world), the highest ranked player in the world, as well as Nelly Korda, Danielle Kang, and Lexi Thompson. Boo, a Vietnamese-American, became the new queen of golf by winning the LPGA Honda Thailand in February, followed by the major tournaments, the Chevron Championship in April and the AIG Women’s Open in August. Here, this year’s US Women’s Open champion Allison Koppuz and ‘super rookie’ Rose Zhang will be making her Solheim Cup debut.
Europe, led by Norway’s Suzanne Petersen, is no easy task. Led by Celine Boutier (France), who has risen to 5th place in the world with 소닉카지노3 wins including 1 major title this season, the main players are Georgia Hall, Charlie Hull (England), and Carlotta Ciganda (Spain), who is aiming for the title in her hometown. It goes out. Additionally, five Swedish players are contributing. Maya Starck, Lynn Grand, Anna Nordqvist, Caroline Hedval and Madeleine Saxström will participate.
