About The Solheim Cup
The Solheim Cup is a biennial trans-Atlantic team matchplay competition and is considered the premier event in women’s world golf. Founded in 1990 by Karsten Manufacturing Corporation (KMC) – makers of PING golf equipment – The Solheim Cup features 12 of the top European born players from the Ladies European Tour (LET) and 12 top American born players from the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA). Players on both sides of the Atlantic compete for points in their respective tour events to earn a coveted place on the team.
Played over three days, The Solheim Cup consists of 28 matches – eight foursome matches, eight four-ball matches and 12 singles played on the final day. The USA leads by six encounters to three over Europe after the ninth edition of the matches took place at Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, Indiana from 9th-11th September 2005. After the momentous European victory at The 2003 Solheim Cup in Sweden, The Solheim Cup will return to Sweden again in 2007.
