Frustrated captains


SUGAR GROVE, Ill. – The Solheim Cup captains are off to rough starts.

U.S. Solheim Cup captain Beth Daniel complained that all she was doing was “putting out fires” upon her arrival this week.

She said she was frustrated that arrangements she’s been making for more than a year were not in order when she got here.

European Solheim Cup captain Alison Nicholas was equally frustrated.

Nicholas said the team radios did not work on Tuesday, preventing communication.

“I have to say, it’s difficult because communication is important, and if you can’t communicate, it takes time to get things through, getting drinks and sandwiches and that type of thing,” Nicholas said. “I was pretty frustrated yesterday, I have to say.”
