Next year’s European Solheim Cup Captain Catriona Matthew congratulates European Ryder Cup Captain Thomas Bjorn and his entire Ryder Cup team on their tremendous victory at Le Golf National in Paris.
Catriona, who partnered Thomas Bjorn in this year’s GolfSixes, said: “Congratulations to Thomas and the whole European Ryder Cup team on their well-deserved victory at Le Golf National. I absolutely loved my first experience of the Ryder Cup and admired the way that Thomas brought all the players, caddies and fans together as one family and one team. The Solheim Cup is the exact same format and so watching Europe’s inspired performance in the Ryder Cup has certainly built our excitement for next year.”
Matthew spent the week at the Ryder Cup and is now looking for another European victory in the next instalment of the Europe vs USA battle: The 2019 Solheim Cup at Gleneagles in Scotland.
The 2019 Solheim Cup will place on the renowned PGA Centenary Course at Gleneagles, venue of Europe’s incredible victory in The 2014 Ryder Cup, led by Paul McGinley. The 2019 Solheim Cup will see a passionate crowd of 100,000 attendees roaring on their heroes in yet another Europe vs USA encounter.
Inaugurated in 1990, The Solheim Cup mirrors the format of The Ryder Cup with a biennial tournament contested by teams consisting of the best female professional golfers representing Europe and the United States. Held over three days, the competition sees both teams playing a total of 28 matches; 8 foursomes, 8 fourballs and 12 singles. The United States leads Europe 10-5 since the event’s inception with some incredible drama and controversy along the way.
Make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to be there to enjoy the action and witness sporting history being made in a truly unique setting.
