Contents

The Solheim Cup is a biennial golf tournament for professional women golfers contested by teams representing Europe and the United States. It is named for the Norwegian-American golf club manufacturer Karsten Solheim, who was a driving force behind its creation. Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ... This article is about the sport. ... For other uses, see Europe (disambiguation). ... Some golf clubs Golf clubs are used in the sport of golf to hit a golf ball. ... Karsten Solheim (September 15, 1911 in Bergen, Norway — February 16, 2000 in Phoenix, Arizona) was a Norwegian-born American golf club designer and businessman who founded Karsten Manufacturing, a leading golf club maker better known by its brand name of PING, and the Solheim Cup. ...


The inaugural Cup was held in 1990, and the event was staged in even number years until 2002. As part of the general reshuffling of team golf events consequent to the postponement of the 2001 Ryder Cup due to 9/11, the Solheim Cup switched to odd numbered years from 2003, which means that it does not clash with the Ryder Cup, which is the equivalent men's event between the USA and Europe. The Ryder Cup is a golf trophy contested biennially in an event called the Ryder Cup Matches by teams from Europe and the United States. ...

The US team is selected by a points system, with American players on the LPGA Tour receiving points for each good finish on tour. For the European team, up to 2005, only seven players were selected on a points system based on results on the Ladies European Tour (LET). This allows top European players who compete mainly on the LPGA Tour to be selected to ensure that the European team is competitive. From 2007, only the top five players from the LET will qualify and another four will be selected on the basis of the Women's World Golf Rankings. This reflects the increasing dominance of the LPGA Tour, where almost all top European players spend most of their time.[1] In addition, each team has a number of "captain's picks," players chosen at the discretion of the team captains, regardless of their point standings, though in practice the captain's picks are often the next ranking players. The LPGA is the Ladies Professional Golf Association. ... // The Ladies European Tour is a professional golf tour for women which was founded in 1979. ... LPGA stands for Ladies Professional Golf Association. ... // The Womens World Golf Rankings, also known for sponsorship reasons as the Rolex Rankings were introduced in February 2006. ...


Team captains are typically recently-retired professional golfers with Solheim Cup playing experience, chosen for their experience playing on previous Cup teams and for their ability to lead a team. In golf the distinction between amateurs and professionals is rigorously maintained. ...


The cup is played over three days. Since 2002, there have been 28 matches—eight foursomes, eight four-balls and 12 singles on the final day. This is the same format of the Ryder Cup. Before 1996, and also in 2000, the Solheim Cup used a similar, but abbreviated format.

It follows a similar format to The Solheim Cup and features the top 12 U.S. amateur girls — defined as girls participating in American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) events — versus their European counterparts. The event is held over two days, with six fourball and six foursomes matches the first day, and twelve singles matches the second day. The United States won in 2002, and the European side evened the series in Sweden in 2003. The United States took back the lead in the 2005 competition, winning 16-8 on home soil in Indiana.
