Suzann Pettersen names Laura Davies, Anna Nordqvist and Caroline Martens as three vice captains for 2023 Solheim

European Solheim Cup captain Suzann Pettersen has named her three vice captains. The event’s next staging will be played September 2023 at Finca Cortesín in Casares, Spain.

Dame Laura Davies will once again serve as a vice captain along with Anna Nordqvist and Caroline Martens. Davies, who made 12 appearances in the Solheim as a competitor, served as vice captain under Catriona Matthew in two victorious showings in 2019 and 2021.

Nordqvist, a three-time major winner, has competed in the last seven editions, securing 15.5 points during that span. She has been on four winning teams and could potentially be a playing vice captain in Spain.

Martens, a close friend of Pettersen’s, competed on the LET for eight seasons.

Pettersen calls being named Solheim Cup captain the greatest honor of her career.

“I’m excited for what Caroline, Anna and Laura can bring to Team Europe as we look to defend the Cup on Spanish soil in the Costa del Sol,” said Pettersen in a release. “With all three of them by my side, I couldn’t ask for anything better, and I’m certain that they will be great for our team.”

U.S. captain Stacy Lewis has so far named Natalie Gulbis and Morgan Pressel as two of her assistants. Team USA hasn’t won the Cup since 2017.
