- Europe are routed 4-0 in foursomes but battle back in fourballs
- Emily Pedersen’s hole-in-one is the second in Solheim history
It took 12 hours of this Solheim Cup for the European team to discover a pulse. Time will tell whether the ignominy they suffered during a bruising morning in Andalusia fatally undermines hopes of winning the trophy for a third time in succession.
The United States routed their hosts 4-0 in the foursomes. The half-point secured by Gemma Dryburgh and Madelene Sagström against Rose Zhang and Megan Khang in the fourballs placed blue on the board for the first time. Yet Suzann Pettersen and her European team needed more. Much more. They were gasping desperately for air.
