Report cards: 2015 European Solheim Cup team


Carlota Ciganda (1-1-2)

Carlota Viganda
Grade B

Skinny: Was sensational with Reid and provided points in three of four matches. Did well to halve singles match with Thompson.

Sandra Gal (2-1-1)

Sandra Gal
Grade B

Skinny: Played fairly well in front of German crowd, but she was the anchor in singles against Creamer and didn’t put up much of a fight.

Caroline Hedwall (1-3)

Caroline Hedwall
Grade D

Skinny: Was in terrible form entering the matches and did not play well at all. It’s on the captain for playing her four times, twice in foursomes.

Charley Hull (4-1)

Charley Hull
Grade A

Skinny: She's now 6-2 in Solheim career and will be a pain for the Americans for the next 20 years. Kerr steamrolled her in singles to hand her first loss of the week.

Karine Icher (2-1)

Karine Icher
Grade B

Skinny: Quietly went about her business and produced results. Put the first full European singles point on the board.

Caroline Masson (0-2-1)

Caroline Masson
Grade C

Skinny: It’s a big ask to play well in your home country. She didn’t step up. Hampered by Hedwall once and missed a putt to retain the cup.

Catriona Matthew (3-1)

Cationa Mathew
Grade B+

Skinny: At 46, somehow keeps on producing stellar results. Lost to Pressel in singles. It was the first time since 1998 that she lost a singles match.

Azahara Munoz (0-3)

Azahara Munoz
Grade D

Skinny: Disappointing. Led Spain to International Crown match-play success and has played well in past two Solheim Cups. Not this time.

Gwladys Nocera (1-1)

Gwiadys Nocera
Grade B

Skinny: Maybe grade should be more like an incomplete. Won match on Day 1 then never played again until a singles loss to Lee.

Anna Nordqvist (2-2)

Anna Nordqvist
Grade B

Skinny: Always consistent for Europe. This time was no different. Pettersen played poorly with her in a match, but she beat Lewis in singles.

Suzann Pettersen (2-2)

Suzann Petterson
Grade D+

Skinny: Best Euro player didn’t deliver goods on Sunday and silly controversy gave the U.S. a last bit of motivation to carry them to victory.

Melissa Reid (3-0-1)

Melissa Reid
Grade A+

Skinny: Emotional return to Germany for first time since mother died in car crash three years ago. Simply was outstanding. Europe’s bright light.

Carin Koch, Captain

Carin Koch
Grade D

Skinny: Seemed to be too many distractions and she didn’t handle the Pettersen deal well. Let it linger and it provided American comeback spark. Never should’ve played Hedwall in four matches.
