Team USA retain the Solheim Cup by 16½ to 11½ points at Des Moines Golf and Country Club.
Team USA Captain Julie Inkster was delighted;
“I’m just proud of my team. The Europeans fought hard today. They made it really close.”
“I really haven’t been nervous all week. But today I was a little bit nervous. So it’s just an honor to captain this team and I’m really proud of the girls.”
“They just came in, in good form. They came in ready to play. They knew what this golf course demanded.”
“We had great preparation. We played loose. And we played free. We played for each other.”
