Team USA have taken a commanding advantage in the Solheim Cup and will have a three-point lead starting tomorrow. It is  the first time  ever  there has been a whitewash in the Friday four-balls, which now leaves Team Europe a mountain to climb over the next two days.

Team  Europe Captain Annika Sorenstam was gracious in defeat;

“It wasn’t the afternoon we had wished for, but the players fought very hard.”

“I must say the U.S. team played very well, they made a lot of birdies. They made a lot of putts.”

“And we just didn’t have the same flow. So overall, just still feel pretty happy how we had the setup. And like I said, the girls fought to the end.”
