Discussion: How impressive is Juli Inkster qualifying for Solheim Cup team?


A captain's pick in 2009, Juli Inkster said at the time that it would be her final appearance at the event.  'I'm not doing a Brett Favre,' she said.  'I want to come out and watch from now on.'  Two years later, though, Inkster is 9th in the U.S. standings entering the final event this week before the teams are finalized.  With the top 10 automatically qualifying, Inkster is mathematically assured of a spot on the team - one she confirmed last week she would accept, in addition to her role as assistant to captain Rosie Jones.  Inkster won her first LPGA event in 1983, before seven of the top 10 players in the current U.S. Solheim Cup standings were born.  Now, at age 51, she has qualified for her 9th Solheim Cup appearance.  How impressive is this achievement?
