Davies makes Cup team again
England’s former World No 1 Laura Davies has clinched her 11th successive Solheim Cup cap.
England’s former World No 1 Laura Davies clinched her 11th successive Solheim Cup cap on Sunday to extend her record of playing in every match since the event began in 1990.
The 45-year-old finished down the field on 14 over par after a closing 74 in the Ricoh Women’s British Open at Royal Lytham on Sunday and would have been left needing a wild card if two Europeans had gone past her on the points table.
But Norway’s Marianne Skarpnord and German Martina Eberl did not do enough. Sophie Gustafson and Maria Hjorth, two others on the borderline of selection, did qualify for the European team, but there will be an anxious wait for the others with captain Alison Nicholas naming three wild cards at 7pm.
The Automatic qualifiers for the Solheim Cup match, United States v Europe, at Rich Harvest Farms, Illinois, on August 21-23 are:
Helen Alfredsson (Swe)
Laura Davies (Eng)
Tania Elosegui (Spa)
Sophie Gustafson (Swe)
Maria Hjorth (Swe)
Diana Luna (Ita)
Catriona Matthew (Sco)
Gwladys Nocera (Fra)
Suzann Pettersen (Nor)
