Congratulations to Catriona Matthew and the European Solheim Cup Team for winning by the narrowest of margins, 15-13, another epic competition. Both teams delivered high quality golf and this truly has become a great spectator event. The Europeans are a feisty bunch and they were forced to play their best golf to overcome a strong US challenge.
This format, which is exactly the same format as the Ryder Cup , does present different challenges by involving foursome, fourball and singles play, and offers these talented golfers different challenges to the regular week after week of strokeplay events, that runs for most of the rest of the season. Maybe that’s the big attraction , these different formats… whatever, it works! Fantastic golf by both teams… again.
Two years ago the event was held at the amazing Gleneagles Resort in Scotland and we, at Scotland Tours, had the pleasure of looking after over 100 fans of both teams. We witnessed first hand the fantastic competition, which went to the last putt on the last green- it doesn’t get any closer than that! The next Solheim Cup will be in September 2023 at the Finca Cortesin Club in southern Spain.
Thank you ladies, for a very entertaining weekend.
The next Ryder Cup event is just 2 weeks away, 24-26 September 2021 at the Whistling Straights Resort in Kohler, Wisconsin. This promises to be another epic duel, featuring many of the world’s top golfers, and the world will be watching. This gets the 3rd highest worldwide tv audience (after the Olympics and The World Cup) so every shot will be watched carefully. Good luck gents, play your best golf, and showcase golf for the great sport it is.
