Europe Defeats United States 14-10 to Capture PING Junior Solheim Cup
Ciganda, Parker, Rossler go undefeated against United States

BASTAD, Sweden – After building a 7-5 lead Tuesday at the PING Junior Solheim Cup, the European team captured seven of the 12 singles matches against the United States to win its second Cup 14-10 Wednesday. The overall series is now tied at two wins apiece, and the team hosting the event has won the PING Junior Solheim Cup in all four instances.

Patterned after The Solheim Cup, the PING Junior Solheim Cup featured the top-12 girls from the United States against those from Europe. The event was played on Bastad Golf Club’s par-71, 5,880-yard New Course in Bastad, Sweden Sept. 10-12. Past U.S. Team PING Junior Solheim Cup participants include Paula Creamer, Brittany Lincicome, and Morgan Pressel. Creamer was the first player to make the move from the PING Junior Solheim Cup to the Solheim Cup Team where she helped lead her team to victory in 2005 with a 3-1-1 record.

Despite Sydney Burlison of Salinas, Calif., defeating Sally Watson of Scotland 2 and 1 in the first match of the day, the United States was never able to gain any momentum. The Europeans claimed six of the next seven matches and actually clinched the PING Junior Solheim Cup when the eighth match of the day between Audrey Goumard of France and Isabelle Lendl of Bradenton, Fla., ended in a 5 and 4 European victory. And while the U.S. team won three of the final four matches, the late push was simply not enough.

Carlota Ciganda of Spain, Florentyna Parker of England, and Nicola Rössler of Germany were a perfect 3-0-0 in their matches. Five European players were 2-1-0: Goumard, Caroline and Jacqueline Hedwall of Sweden, Nathalie Månsson, also of Sweden, and Marta Silva of Spain.

The victorious European team.

This is the second European victory at the PING Junior Solheim Cup. In 2003 at Bokskogan Golf Club in Bara, Sweden, Europe led 6.5-5.5 going into the singles matches. The two teams split the 12 matches, giving Europe a 12.5-11.5 victory, the narrowest margin of victory to date.

Kristen Park of Buena Park, Calif., who defeated Charlotte Kring Lorentzen of Denmark Wednesday 2 and 1, went 3-0-0 for the United States in her first PING Junior Solheim Cup appearance. Ranked No. 1 in the current Polo Golf Rankings, Park’s 2007 has included wins at the U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship and Kathy Whitworth Junior and four top-10 AJGA finishes. Mina Harigae of Monterey, Calif., Vicky Hurst of Melbourne, Fla., Isabelle Lendl of Bradenton, Fla., and Jane Rah of Torrance, Calif., all posted 2-1-0 records.

Despite a united front, the U.S. team could not retain the Cup.

The Solheim Cup, the most prestigious team event in women’s professional golf and sponsored by PING golf equipment, is named in honor of the company’s founder, Karsten Solheim, and his family. It is a biennial, trans-Atlantic team match-play competition featuring the best American-born players from the LPGA Tour and the best European-born players from the Ladies European Tour.

The U.S. Team leads this competition 6-3 and has never lost on home soil. The European Team has won three of the four events held overseas and will be looking to regain the Cup in 2007.

PING designs, manufactures and markets a complete line of golf equipment including metal woods, irons, putters and golf bags. The family-owned company was founded in 1959 by the late Karsten Solheim. Solheim is the only person to be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame as a golf club manufacturer. Today, the Phoenix-based company is under the direction of Solheim’s youngest son, John A. Solheim.  PING game-improvement products can be found in more than 70 countries. For more information, visit www.pinggolf.com.
