The lineup for Sunday’s 12 singles matches in the
has been announced. Europe carries a 10.5-5.5 lead into Sunday’s final round, looking to retain the Cup for the first time since the competition began in 1990.
Europe won the most recent Solheim Cup matches in 2011 in Ireland. That win ended a string of three straight U.S. wins. If Europe retains the Cup, it will mark the first time it has done so since the competition began in 1990. The U.S. team has an 8-4 all-time lead in the series.
Europe needs just three singles wins and a halve in the 12 singles matches to retain the cup.
