Team Europe will be looking for Solheim Cup success this week at Finca Cortesin, live on Sky Sports, but can they make history against Team USA in Spain?

Following a dramatic 14.5-13.5 win at Gleneagles in 2019, Europe return home as Solheim Cup winners in 2021 with a 15-13 victory to retain their title on American soil.

Catriona Mathew led Europe to both of those wins, while Suzanne Pietersen – who took the winning putt in 2019 – now captains the hosts as they look to win a third in a row for the first time in the two-year competition’s history.

As the Solheim Cup kicks off on September 22nd, we look back at some of the best winning moments between Team USA and Team Europe.

Petersen has an ever-strong European team with five of the world’s top 20 teams and most of the teams that won two years ago, although Team USA has the world’s top three and several players who have won in recent months. LPGA Tour.

Catriona Mathew, nine-time Solheim Cup champion and two-time winning captain

It really is the premier women’s golf event in the world and it brings so much excitement and passion. It’s a huge part of my career and one I’ve always wanted to be a part of. The excitement of match play is special.

Score Prediction: Team Europe 15-13 Team America

I love that the Solheim Cup exudes emotion, animation and fist pumping that you don’t see in a normal 72-hole stroke play tournament. With the added storyline of Europe trying to make history, three in a row, and it’s on home soil, this could be a classic.

Score Prediction: Team Europe 16-12 Team America

Player to watch: Lynn Grant The last two years have been incredible. Last year’s Rookie of the Year won his first LPGA Tour event of the season and advanced to the semifinals at the Bank of Hope Match Play. The other four Swedes will help her and I think she will show why she is a Solheim champion.

Richard Kaufman, Sky Sports commentator

I agree with Suzanne Peterson that Europe is the favorite. A team with deep strength at home has been playing at pace for the last four years. But I’m not as sure as I was back in January that that cry of „ole ole ole” would be heard on Sunday evening.

Score Prediction: Team Europe 15-13 Team America

Player to watch: There is every possibility Lynn Grant Never watched the Solheim Cup on TV. She likes to ride horses, but who cares. It’s a newcomer in name only and a player who exudes quiet authority backed by one of the world’s best sports.

Team Europe captain Suzanne Peterson inspired a Tina Turner singalong as her players showed off some dance moves ahead of the Solheim Cup.

Jamie Weir, Sky Sports news anchor

There’s no such thing as team golf, especially when it’s Europe against the US. It’s Solheim Cup or Ryder Cup! Everything is set perfectly for a wonderful fortnight.

Score Prediction: Team Europe 15.5-12.5 Team America
