Juli Inkster steps down as US Solheim Cup captain, admitting that Europe deserved incredible victory
Europe deserved their thrilling Solheim Cup triumph, according to US captain Juli Inkster, who afterwards confirmed it would be her last as captain.
Inkster became fr first woman to captain three American Solheim Cup teas this year after winning the previous two.
However, she was unable to make it a perfect sweep as Europe claimed a remarkable win at the death – although she was typically classy in defeat.
“You know what, I told them afterwards, the sun’s going to come up tomorrow,” Inkster said when asked what was said in the US team after the defeat.
“It was great for women’s golf. We played great. I mean, yesterday was just a brutal day of golf.
“And today the sun came out and we saw a lot of great golf.
“You know what, the Europeans played great. You tip your hat. And you move on
“I’m really happy where I’m at,” she said. “I’ve had the honor to do this three times. And it’s been an honor.
“And I’m 2-1. We’re 2-1. I thought that’s been good. I’d be making a lot if I was a baseball player.
“It’s not really about the wins and losses. It’s about the memories and the camaraderie.
“It’s about making those friendships and making those memories, and to be a part of a team.
“That’s why I do it. That’s why I love to do it.”
