Whether you have been following this event for a while or just want to watch it for the first time, you might be interested to make some fortune from it. Therefore, you might need to know the preview and predictions of the Solheim Cup teams.
The US won the previous Solheim Cup in 2017 back then at Des Moines Golf and Country Club in Iowa, USA. This year, the competition will take place at Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire, Scotland on September 13-15, 2019. The date is around the corner, so you will want to be prepared.
The first eight players on the US team are available from those who have the Solheim rankings. The points system determined the rankings back then. Then the next two players are coming from the Rolex Women’s World rankings, specifically the top two players from the specific rankings. They are not part in the Top 8 of Solheim Rankings. Then the US captain Julie Inkster was responsible to the remaining two members pick. She handpicked the two member’s team to complete the US squad.
For Europe team, the point system is also dictating the selection process. The process began immediately after the 2017 Solheim Cup until the Aberdeen Standard Investments ladies cup. The top three players based on the accumulated points reserved the first three sports on the team. Similar to Team US, the next five team members came from Rolex Women’s World rankings. The top five players in the Solheim Rankings would reserve spots for the team. Then the other four players came from the captain’s picks.
