'It was one of the easiest decisions the Board has ever had to make. I just wish all the issues on the agenda were so straight forward' said Ladies European Tour Chief Executive Tim Howland. 'Dale did a marvelous job at Loch Lomond, and we saw no reason to change a winning formula.'
Reid led the European Team to a 14.5 to 11.5 victory against a heavily favored U.S. squad on her home soil at Loch Lomond in Scotland.
'It's a great honor again to be offered what I think is the best job in women's golf,' said Reid.
'It was always my dream to win the Cup in Europe, and it's now my dream to bring it back home from America. Hopefully I can learn from any mistakes I made first time round and do an even better job in 2002.'
The 2002 Solheim Cup will be played in September at Interlachen Country Club in Minnesota.
