Lexi Thompson's 'weirdest round' helps United States to beat Europe in Solheim Cup

Lexi Thompson's 'weirdest round' helps United States to beat Europe in Solheim Cup

"We want the Cup", U.S. captain Juli Inkster, a Harbor High alum, said. "This is really special". John Daly had a 68, and Charles Schwab Cup leader Bernhard Langer and defending champion Paul Goydos shot 69. I'm just trying to pump us both up, saying two balls in play, two balls on the green.

That means the Americans have to find just 3 1/2 points on Sunday from 12 singles matches to win back-to-back Solheim Cups for the first time since 2007 and 2009.

Team USA and Team Europe each won two of four foursome matches on Saturday morning, allowing the Americans to carry a 7 1/2-4 1/2-point lead into the afternoon session.

Anna Nordqvist and Jodi Ewart Shadoff beat Lizette Salas and Angel Yin 4&2, but that was the sole bright spot for Europe.

But the young English star rattled in the putt to secure the first point for Europe since Friday lunchtime.

European pair Jodi Ewart Shadoff and Anna Nordqvist won their fourball 4&2, but the United States took the remaining three matches on Saturday afternoon.

"We were just talking about that coming in here", Catriona Matthew said. "Every time I start a Solheim Cup, I always hope I have a memorable moment because it's the coolest atmosphere we experience". For context Europe won 18-10 in Colorado four years ago.

Salas produced a stunning front nine as she made five birdies, including three in the first three holes.

"That was the weirdest round of golf I've ever played", said Thompson, who went 2-0-2 for the week.

India's hegemonic policy at the heart of Doklam stand-off
Both Bhutan and India maintain that the junction between the three nations is located at a mountain pass called Batang La. There are not many signs that India is seeking peace.

Sorenstam said afterwards: "I said this was a one-time thing for me. As the captain, I'm the last one that's going to leave the ship". I have to go and shoot at least what I shot today, if not better.

It hardly helped Europe's cause that Charley Hull, the team's talisman and top scorer in the last match, was unable to play yesterday having aggravated a long-term wrist injury.

The Swede pulled even with Simpson with birdies on four of five holes, a run he capped by sticking his second shot on the par-4 17th some 10 feet from the hole and converting that putt.

Before that, he has the chance to earn an even bigger honor: Ghim and Redman will play 36 holes at Riviera Country Club on Sunday to determine the victor of the Havemeyer Trophy and the 117th edition of the Amateur.

Icher and Matthew then edged their match 2&1 against Michelle Wie and Danielle Kang.

The US won the second match by the same lop-sided margin as Paula Creamer and Austin Ernst outplayed Mel Reid and Emily Pedersen.

Captain Annika Sorenstam and her team will likely spend their trip back across the Atlantic wondering when they'll be ready to compete with the USA again. "It's a marathon. It's not a sprint".

It's hard to pick what jumps out at you more when you watch Lexi Thompson-the actual jumping she does at impact, or the pyrotechnics of her golf game. We have to do the process. "We had a great leadership team and players to work with and I couldn't have asked for any more". "The simultaneous report by the Milwaukee Bucks and Giannis Antetokounmpo himself, by phone and social media from faraway China, and not by the appropriate official manner, of his inability to join the national men's team saddens us. but is not surprising", the federation said in the statement. And it makes me a little upset, because I think we've got a great product and I think the golf is fantastic.
