Europe Retains Solheim Cup
Team Europe retained the Solheim Cup on Sunday in Spain.
The matches actually ended in a tie, 14-14, for the first time ever, giving Europe the cup back.
However, this was a blown opportunity for the U.S. Women.
The U.S. got off to a 4-0 lead on the first session of matches on Friday morning, before Europe chipped away to tie it up at 8 points each heading into Sunday singles.
The U.S. held a 13-11 lead in Sunday singles with both Nelly Korda and Lexi Thompson on the course and up and matches.
Korda ended up losing her match and Thompson was four-up before seeing her lead cut to two-up and match extending longer than the U.S. needed.
“I just told them we didn’t lose, we tied,” said Captain Stacy Lewis to Golf Channel after the matches.
Massachusetts native Megan Khang won her singles match on Sunday morning.
The Solheim Cup will be played in Washington, D.C. next year.
