TURNBERRY, Scotland – U.S. Solheim Cup hopefuls aren’t making a very good impression on the Euros at the Ricoh Women’s British Open so far this week.
Wie withdrew Friday after aggravating an injury to her left ankle. Pressel and Creamer missed the cut.
Jessica Korda, defending Ricoh Women’s British Open champion Mo Martin, Alison Lee and Kim Kaufman are fighting to qualify but couldn’t take advantage of the double points available at this week’s major. They all missed the cut.
So did U.S. captain Juli Inkster.
And Euro Solheim Cup vice captain Maria McBride shot the round of the day with a bogey-free 66.
The Solheim Cup is scheduled Sept. 18-20 at St. Leon-Rot Golf Club outside Heidelberg, Germany. Aug. 23 is the final day of qualifying.
