Stacy Lewis, who will be the captain of the U.S. squad at the 2023 Solheim Cup, named Natalie Gulbis an assistant captain for the team.

Gulbis, 39, played on three winning Solheim Cup teams (2005, 2007, 2009) and posted a 5-4-1 mark. She went 2-0-1 her singles matches. Gulbis joined the LPGA in 2002 and has one victory, the 2007 Evian Masters.

“There’s nothing more inspiring than wearing the Red, White and Blue and representing the United States. Playing on my three Solheim Cup teams is among the highlights of my career, and I was so excited when Stacy asked me to work with her for the 2023 squad,” said Gulbis in a statement released by the LPGA.

Morgan Pressel will also be an assistant for the Solheim Cup, which will be held in Spain at Finca Cortesin, September 22-24, 2023.

“When I accepted this captaincy, I knew that I wanted the team around me to love this event as much as I do. Natalie completely fits that role,” said Lewis in a statement released by the LPGA. “She’s been a great friend since my rookie year, and I knew that she would be perfect as one of my assistant captains. Natalie has been a fantastic resource for me throughout my career, both personally and professionally, and I know her positive spirit will be an awesome influence in the team room.”
