2017 Solheim Cup Teams Announced
The teams for the 2017 Solheim Cup next month have been announced.
Jodi Ewart Shadoff booked her place in Team Europe with a runner-up finish at the Ricoh Women’s British Open, whilst Charley Hull, Mel Reid and Suzann Pettersen all qualified automatically.
European Captain Annika Sorenstam had four wildcard picks and chose four-time Solheim Cup player Anna Nordqvist, two-time Solheim Cup player Caroline Masson and rookies Emily Pederson, from Denmark, and Sweden’s Magdalene Sagstrom.
US Captain Juli Inkster made some bold choices, looking past Paula Creamer, Morgan Pressel and Angela Stanford, who have made 17 Solheim Cup appearances between them.
