The United States is traditionally stronger in the Solheim Cup, a women’s golf competition between the United States and Europe held every two years. In 17 meetings, the United States leads with 10 wins and 7 losses. But if you look at the recent performance, the story is different. In six competitions since 2011, including winning two competitions in a row, Europe has the upper hand by winning four times in 2011, 2013, 2019, and 2021.토토사이트

The United States, with its pride hurt, will form a team of elite members to regain the top spot in the 18th Solheim Cup, which opens on the 22nd (local time) at Finca Cortesin (par 72) in Casares, Malaga Province, Spain. The United States will be led by world number 2 Lilia Bu (26), who won two major tournaments this year, and world number 3 Nellie Korda (25), who has 8 wins in total, behind her. In addition, Allison Copuz, winner of this year’s major U.S. Women’s Open and leading money list on the LPGA Tour, will make her Solheim Cup debut. It’s not the end. After her brilliant amateur days, she is joined by ‘super rookie’ Rose Jang (20), who won the Mizuho Americas Open in June, her official debut, and is evaluated as having the strongest power of all time. Additionally, Megan Kang, Jennifer Cupcho, Danielle Kang, Andrea Lee, and Lexi Thompson were also named to the list, while Allie Ewing, Cheyenne Knight, and Angel Yin joined as general manager-designated players.

Celine Boutier, Lilia Boutier
Europe will fight back with world No. 5 Celine Boutier (30, France), who recorded three wins in this year’s LPGA tour and leads the CME Globe points. Boutier, who is participating in the Solheim Cup for the third time following 2019 and 2021, achieved excellent results with 5 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss in the past two competitions. The European team includes five Swedish players, and Charlie Hull (England), Carlota Ciganda (Spain), Liona Maguire (Ireland), Gemma Driver (Scotland), and Emily Pedersen (Denmark) will also participate.

In the competition, 12 players from each team participate in foursome and fourball matches four times a day over two days, and on the final day, all players play a single match to determine the winning team.
