This event is quickly sneaking up - only a couple weeks away. Should be a very competitive tournament.  I don't think team Europe is as strong this year they were in 2017 but still has some great players.  Julie looks to have pulled together a good mix of rookies and veterans.  My prediction is a USA win with Altomare playing a big role.

I'd agree. However, while I like Stacy Lewis I'm somewhat surprised she was picked since she hasn't played well recently.

I've always liked Stacy too.  It's taken her quite awhile to return to good golf after having a baby, but she played pretty well several weeks ago.  I'm sure that she won't want to let the team down, so I expect her to play well.  With that said... I'm still picking Europe, but I've been wrong before, so...

Kenny, are you thinking Europe has a stronger team, advantage at Gleneagles, historic win/lose pattern... ?

I think they have the stronger team.  Playing over there is an added perk.

I give Europe the edge as they have 1 less rookie on the team and appear to have more experience on the board.  Lewis doesn't have a great record in Cup play from the looks of it. 

GO USA and looking forward to watching every shot I can.

Thinking about going up to watch but depends on the weather, only 45 minutes away. 

I remember last year they were looking for volunteers, I was working at the time so didn't apply, regretting it now!

Oh man, I'd be all over that opportunity.

how much were they wanting you to pay for 'volunteering' your valuable time?

Here is my preview, predictions, and More:

www.tonyslpgareport.com/

 

weather forecast here is decent for the start of the Solheim, thank goodness, its been raining a lot so the fairways are soft meaning the PGA will play long, very long (unless they move the tees up which I really hope they dont), so the long game big hitters will def have an advantage this week. 

Looking forward to it and hoping to be there if personal circumstances facilitate it.

Looks like 2 players are still waiting for clubs to arrive. Aer Lingus is still looking for Angel Yin's and Jodi Shadoff's golf clubs.

Looks like Stacey Lewis had to withdraw because of a back problem. Ally McDonald is the alternate stepping in.

Curious how the young bulldog will do.

SKY golfs promo adverts ONLY feature Charlie Hull in them. I think they have forgotten it's a team game, and they have exceptional other players and even more exceptional opponents.

(I'm not a C Hull fan in case you haven't guessed😂)

Dunno. I don't know much about her but apparently she was on the bubble to make the roster; losing out to Allenmore by a whisker.  Let's hope she brings even half of the bulldog determination and level of play Kisner showed at the Presidents Cup.

Solheim Cup USA Jnr team just won 13-11 

Bodes well for the main team

I didn't know we had a jr. team 🙃.  In high school, everytime we freshman won our basketball game, the varsity team lost, and vice versa.  We ended with a perfect record... of sorts.  Hoping that trend doesn't follow for the USA teams.

Interesting as @fixyurdivot said I didn't know we had a Jr. team either. Just looked up an article buried on the LPGA site. Apparently this event is for young amateur women and has been going on since 2007. FYI the USA captain is Mary Bea Porter-King. 

Thanks for giving us a heads up on the results.
