Europe and the US are tied 8-8 in the Solheim Cup, with Sunday’s singles at Finca Cortesin.

After another thrilling day at Finca Cortesin, Europe and the United States will enter Sunday’s 12 Solheim Cup singles matches tied at 8-8.

Europe has made a remarkable comeback after losing a disastrous first session on Friday by a score of 4-0, coming back to only trail 5-3 at night in Spain.

The morning session on Saturday ended in a 2-2 tie, but Europe once more took the afternoon fourballs 3-1 to tie the game.

Suzann Pettersen, the captain of Europe, remarked, “We’ve made quite the comeback.”

But we must keep in mind that we are not there. Twelve points are still up for grabs.

“Only at the Solheim Cup can you witness this intensity of desire, passion, and made putts and made shots.

We’ll be prepared to leave in the morning if I can just gather these girls before they go to bed.

Europe, the current champions, needs six of the 12 possible points to reach 14 in order to win back the Solheim Cup.

They would become the first team to win three straight, while the US has to reach 1412 points to take back the trophy they last took home in 2017.


Europe currently has the upper hand after winning the last three sessions 8-4 to tie the match in its 18th iteration.

Europe was headed by Charley Hull of England and Leona Maguire of Ireland, who defeated Nelly Korda and Ally Ewing of the United States 4&3 and took a four-hole lead after eight holes.

When Madelene Sagstrom and Emily Pedersen defeated Rose Zhang and Andrea Lee 2&1 on the 17th hole, they briefly tied the match at 7-7.

But a little while later, the US regained the lead. Anna Nordqvist and Caroline Hedwall lost a two-hole lead to Cheyenne Knight and Angel Yin after dropping three straight holes starting on the 11th, before giving up on the 18th.

Carlota Ciganda, a local favorite, and Linn Grant of Sweden defeated Danielle Kang and Lilia Vu 2–1, even the score.

The last remaining player with a perfect record is the Spaniard Ciganda, who won both of her matches on Saturday in addition to her fourballs victory on Friday.

Suzann Pettersen, the captain of Europe, embraced Ciganda and said “come on” several times before puffing out her cheeks in appreciation of how crucial that session had been.

When the match was tied 8-8 going into Sunday’s singles, Europe had won twice to three US victories.
