Europe and U.S. tied at 8-8 heading into final day of Solheim Cup

The U.S. team fought back in the fourballs to level the scores at 8-8 heading into the final day of the Solheim Cup at Gleneagles. Three of the four fourball matches were decided on the final hole while Americans Danielle Kang and Lizette Salas beat Carlota Ciganda and Azahara Munoz with a birdie on the 17th to go two up. Gusty conditions with winds clocked at over 50 kph made it difficult for both teams to get going and players also received warnings for slow play. The match between Europe’s Jodi Ewart Shadoff and Caroline Masson and Americans Lexi Thompson Marina Alex finished all square after both teams won three holes each to halve the points. Americans Brittany Altomare and Annie Park and Europe’s Georgia Hall and Celine Boutier won their respective matches to ensure both teams were level heading into Sunday’s singles matches where 12 points are up for grabs.
