SOLHEIM CUP - 2015 -- Team USA won!
The Solheim Cup was established in 1990 by the PING/Solheim family to promote women's golf. It is very similar to the men's Ryder Cup competition. Tweleve women born in the U.S. or naturalized citizens of the U.S. compete against twelve women who were born in Europe and play on the Ladies European Tour (the LET). In September 2015, the Solheim Cup were played at the St. Leon-Rot Club near Heidelberg, Germany. I wrote about the origins of the Solheim Cup, the history of the Solheim family and PING, and reported daily from the competition.
