No-one wants Solheim Cup format change
Sweden’s Annika Sorenstam believes that a European Solheim Cup victory in Ireland this week will kill off talk that the biennial matchplay event is becoming too one-sided.
The United States leads the series 8-3 and will be seeking its fourth successive victory when the three-day match begins on Friday at the Jack Nicklaus designed Killeen Castle course in County Meath, 25 miles north-west of Dublin.
Ten-time major winner Sorenstam, who is one of Europe captain Alison Nicholas’ non-playing assistants this week, does not want to see the event’s format changed to see the United States taking on an International team.
