Statement from PING and the LET on 20th May 2021:
In January 2021, we updated the PING Junior Solheim Cup Qualifying System due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the significant impact it has had on the safety and lives of everyone across the world.
PING and the LET do not want to place any pressure on eligible players to travel internationally to qualifying events in other countries. We want to make sure that the health and well-being of players is at the forefront of our thoughts. Each country has its own policies regarding current inter-country and cross-border travel and we must all respect and adhere to these policies in full.
We presented two options in January and today, we are announcing that due to the current travel circumstances, we must move to Option 2 for the selection of the team.
Option 2 – as detailed in the original letter:
If the Covid-19 pandemic and resulting travel restrictions continue for a longer period and impact international participation in the last six events, we will have to proceed based on there being no automatic team selections from the qualifying process. Instead, we will select the whole team based on a combination of the following:
Performances at the original PJSC qualifying tournaments that are played
Performances at other national and international tournaments that are played
Input from national coaches
Input from our Captain, Annika Sörenstam
Option 2 will give all players the opportunity to excel in the events in which they are able to compete, while recognising the anticipated impact on international travel within Europe.
We are sure you will be as frustrated and disappointed as we are with the situation, but we cannot ignore the difficult and variable circumstances we are experiencing. We have thought long and hard about this and we believe this is the fairest and most appropriate way to move forward with team selection.
Thank you for your understanding, patience and support.

About the PING Junior Solheim Cup
The next PING Junior Solheim Cup will take place at Sylvania Country Club, Toledo, Ohio, United States, 1st – 3rd September, 2021. The venue is located 15 minutes from the Solheim Cup venue, Inverness Club.
Annika Sörenstam is the Captain for the Team EUROPE and Renee Powell is the Captain for Team USA. The teams will be selected in July 2021.
Inaugurated in 2002, the PING Junior Solheim Cup 2021 is a version of The Solheim Cup for female amateurs aged 18 and under (born 2003 and later) and follows a similar format to the senior event, featuring the top 12 European junior amateurs versus their American counterparts.
The aim of the competition is to give junior golfers from both sides of the Atlantic the opportunity to gain international match play experience as well as the chance to meet, learn and be inspired by the professional players playing in The Solheim Cup.
Carlota Ciganda, Spain (PING Junior Solheim Cup 2005 and 2009; The Solheim Cup 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019): “I have great memories from the PING Junior Solheim Cup. I enjoyed making great friendship and I loved playing for a team. Golf is such an individual sport and playing for a team is a feeling that you don’t experience normally. It really motivated me playing for Europe, for the captain and your teammates. Also, when you look at the names that have played both the PING Junior Solheim Cup and The Solheim Cup it keeps you motivated. I remember in 2005 and 2007 it was a lot of fun to watch The Solheim Cup and I wanted to be one of those players.”
Lexi Thompson, United States (PING Junior Solheim Cup 2009 and The Solheim Cup 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019): “The PING Junior Solheim Cup was an experience of a lifetime as a junior golfer. Being able to represent my country with an incredible team and a captain that I’ve looked up to my whole life, Nancy Lopez, was a great honor. Friendships, experiences and memories that I will never forget came from that event. Events like this are why I love the game and is why I’m at where I’m at today.”
Updated European Eligibility Process as of 20th May, 2021
Participants must be girls and 12-18 years old (born 2003 or later) and must not have reached their 18th birthday prior to 1st January, 2021
