Lovely day here today, chilly but hardly any wind.

Charley Hull just chunked her tee shot at the par 3 6th 100yds straight into the swamp.

I note they are off the 2nd most forward tees unfortunately but maybe a decision based on the wet weather earlier in the week.

Greens are looking fantastic despite all the rain.

Shaping up nicely with 2 matches up and 2 matches down

Wow! What a finish by the American team.  Getting those two halves in the final matches by winning the 18th hole on both was huge.   I didn't get to see the early action but got to see the last 4 or 5 holes of most matches.

What a great course and great play by both teams today!

Dang.  I was hoping TGC would cover this vs. The Greenbrier.  Oh well, they'll have it in replay, so that's some consolation.  Europe up by 1 point going into Saturday isn't too bad considering historically Team USA isn't strong in alternate shot format.

They did air it live.  Being in Scotland they were done about 2:30 or so EST.

I tried for hours last night to post Solheim Cup photos and kept getting kicked out - sorry. But I can tell you about it.

The first day was almost perfect. The course is so perfect it looks like artificial turf. The weather was beautiful even though nippy for us Texans. Every time the warmth of the sun went behind a cloud we put lifted jacket hoods and a few times put on wind pants. Some our players did the same. We will prepare for cooler and windier conditions today.

We didn’t hear any negative comments in the crowd about pace of play but did read about it in the news. I commented to my husband a couple of times how long it took a player to get ready to putt. Looking back on that it was always a European team member.

Gleneagles and Scotland are beautiful and a lush green right now. I sent a few photos to another spy so hopefully they can post those for you to see.

Good atmosphere - all of the spectators are friendly. Even though the overwhelming support is for Europe, they do respectfully clap and yell good shot for the Americans. No booing or grumbling even though there were a few sighs.

I understand we were even on TV, standing behind players on #10 tee box.

I don't understand why van Dam played the fourballs as well. She didn't do well in the morning and same thing followed in the afternoon.

Wind earlier today was crazy. The flagstick almost had a 45 degree inclination lol

These are all from the 1st day. My phone screen is too small for me to identify everyone in the photos.

The first 4 are from our perspective on #13 green. We tried to capture a shot of each group. The next one is a beautiful one looking down #16 with the hills in the background. The green is behind the bunker on the far right.

After the pavilion photos is one snapped from where we were standing to the right of tee box #10 along with a few as the players came through. The next to the last one (with a guy bent over) is something I hadn’t seen before - two people following behind each group filling in all divots and picking up any trash.

The last photo is looking across toward #16 green with the last group of the afternoon finishing putting.

Thanks for posting the pics. I watched some of it today - the players definitely looked cold. Hope you brought warm clothes with you.

Day 2 was a brutal and exciting adventure. I loved every second even though I couldn’t feel my toes in my cold wet shoes. We were so excited to watch Danielle Kang make her birdie putt on #17 to win the match and tie the overall score.

We stayed till the end and that putt meant we were only a 2 hole hike to a waiting, warm shuttle bus! The bus ride into the Perth park-and-ride is about 20-25 minutes. It’s a little tense to ride on a double decker bus in strong winds and watch the driver try to stay our skinny lane - somewhat successful. We had taxi waiting for a 10 minute ride to our AirBnB loft in downtown Perth.

Not sure how these ladies managed to hold on to their clubs in these conditions. Masterful job US! As we viewed the on course TV screens we thought they made it look much better than the weather conditions were in person. I think Carlotta Ciganda looked the most miserable of all the players.

Above photos are taken looking on #1 tee box. Exciting festive atmosphere. When Americans tried to chant support for our team, so many Europe fans chanting would over power them. Followed by laughs from everyone.

I understand this cardboard periscope is common at tournaments but it was my first time to see one. This shortie could actually see over the crowd!

The next two I stopped to snap looking both ways down the long #18 as we walked across it.

Dried our shoes overnight on the radiator and now headed back out for day 3. Should be another exciting day. Cold but less wind and no rain forecast.

Go USA!
