Solheim Cup Sunday pairings: Danielle Kang once again in lead-off pairing for trailing U.S. team

·2 min read

One of the final images from Inverness Golf Club in Toledo, Ohio, on Saturday at the Solheim Cup was of U.S. captain Pat Hurst huddled over a golf cart with assistant captains Michelle Wie West, Stacy Lewis and former captain Juli Inkster. That group had some serious strategy to consider as the U.S. team left the first day of Solheim Cup matches trailing Europe 5 ½ to 2 ½.

The Europeans got out to a quick lead in Saturday morning foursomes, winning 3 ½ points to the U.S. team’s ½ point. The two sides then split the afternoon four-balls 2-2.

A bit of a rules controversy overshadowed one of those points as the team of Nelly Korda and Ally Ewing won the 13th hole when Korda’s long eagle putt hung on the lip but was picked up too quickly by European opponent Madelene Sagstrom. Rules officials ultimately deemed the putt as holed, giving Korda and Ewing a 1-up advantage they took to the end of the match.

Overall score – Europe 5 ½, USA 2 ½
