The Solheim Cup attracts enormous attention. If the reactions of golf fans are to be guessed, the European team will have an advantage. European vice-captain Laura Davis also shares the opinion. Davis emphasized that the European team has never had this much depth and quality.
There have always been golfers who were not as good as some. However, now they have 12 golfers who can really do great things. “We’ve always had such strong teams, but it was always kind of the top seven, eight, nine, maybe, that played on the LPGA Tour.
We always had players from the European Tour that didn’t have the experience, and when you come to the very hardest women’s tournament in golf, the pressure – you know, you’re not saying they weren’t great golfers and they could stand up in any stroke play event, but it’s really hard to play against a really strong American team when you don’t really know what you’re coming up against.
So that’s why I think this time, the 12 all play on the LPGA, they’re all winners on the LPGA, and they bring that kind of experience to this team. ”- Davis said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com!
Captain Suzann Pettersen doesn’t want to think too much about what will happen.
For her, the most important thing is that they have a quality team like never before. The fact that European players are in great shape lately gives everyone optimism. “I think we’re all very ready to go. I don’t think there’s anything to hide under a chair that if you look on paper, we have the strongest team that I’ve ever been a part of, and that’s based on great performances over the last few years from all the players.
So with good results, there’s also expectations, but these girls are so up for it, so we can’t wait”. Georgia Hall is confident before the start of the Solheim Cup. She emphasized the same things; The quality is unquestionable, but they will have to show it on the course!
“I think this is the strongest team we’ve ever had on paper, for sure. There’s not one weak player on our team. I think you can put out any of us at any time and I think we’ll perform well. So I think that makes it a little bit easier when picking players to go out and pairings for Suzann. So I think, yeah, we’re very confident going into this”.
