USA and Europe Set to Battle at The Solheim Cup

The best female golfers have gathered in Sugar Grove, Illinois for the 2009 Solheim Cup. Beth Daniel, Hall of Fame Member, captains a strong United States squad led by veteran Juli Inkster and points leader Paula Creamer. Michele Wie also played well enough throughout the year to earn a captains pick and will be making her first appearance in the Solheim Cup. There is no doubt that it could be a very close call when the singles matches get underway on Sunday.

Rich Harvest Farms will play host to the dual as the eleventh edition of the event gets underway on Friday. The Solheim Cup is the women’s version of the Ryder Cup and was named after golf manufacturer and Ping Golf founder Karsten Solheim. The USA teams have won eight of the eleven matches including the last two meetings. As with the Ryder Cup the location alternates venues in Europe and the States.
