New-look Solheim

 

The Solheim Cup is taking on a new look this year. Missing from the European team is Laura Davies, who played in every Solheim Cup since these matches between Europe and United States began in 1990. Europe now has six rookies, including the youngest player in Solheim Cup history, 17-year-old Charley Hull. Juli Inkster is not playing for the first time since 1996. Inkster has a daughter older than two of the American players on this team. Europe will be relying on so many fresh faces to do something it has never done – win the Solheim Cup on American soil. The matches get underway today ( 6:30 a.m., Golf), with Europe as the defending champion. – AP
