Solheim Cup – Day 3 Highlights


Solheim Cup - Day 3 Highlights
    Caroline Hedwall rewrote the history books at Colorado Golf Club when she sank a four foot putt birdie putt at the final hole to beat Michelle Wie and retain the Solheim Cup for Europe. 
    
    The 24-year-old Swede became the first player to win five out five matches -- and by winning the 14th point for Europe she sealed the historic first win in the US. 
    
    The final result was 18-10: the biggest ever margin of victory. 
    
    "I am still shaking but it is an unbelievable feeling," said the elated Hedwall, who was also a star of the win when she was a rookie at Killeen Castle in Ireland two years ago. "But I was so pumped and I ready to go." 
    
    Minutes later and a half point from Catriona Matthew against Gerina Piller took the European tally to 14 ½ points and the Cup had been won outright.
    
    After a stunning 4-0 whitewash in Saturday afternoon's fourballs, Liselotte Neumann's team needed just 3 ½ points from the 12 singles to retain the Cup and England's Charley Hull led the way with a huge win over Paula Creamer. 
    
    But the outcome remained in the balance as matches swung one way and then another and there was more drama when play was halted for thunder and lightning with Europe leading 13-7 and a tantalising one point from glory. 
    
    Before the one hour delay, 17-year-old Hull, the youngest ever Solheim Cup player, had packed five birdies into 14 holes and beaten Creamer, the world No. 11, by 5 and 4.
