On September 18th, the USA and Europe will do battle in the form of the 2015 Solheim Cup at St Leon-Rot GC in Germany.

Team Europe, led by Carin Koch this year, have won the last two editions, with the 2013 success coming in America for the first time.

The USA, who have won the tournament eight times since it was founded in 1990, have Juli Inkster at the helm.

We decided to take a closer look at the players Inkster will have to choose from when the tournament comes around.
