RSS

PARKER, Colo. – The 13th Solheim Cup matches continue Sunday at Colorado Golf Club where the Europeans hold a 10 1/2 to 5 1/2 lead. Here is a breakdown of the Sunday singles matches with analysis from Jay Coffin and Randall Mell, who are both on-site covering the event.


Match 17 - 2:40 p.m. ET: Anna Nordqvist (Europe) vs. Stacy Lewis (U.S.)

COFFIN: Great opening match, but Lewis knows she has to win for Americans to have any hope of a comeback. U.S. WINS

MELL: Lewis hasn’t had a good Solheim Cup, but she is the best player in these matches. Singles should jolt her back into her comfort zone. U.S. WINS


Match 18 - 2:50 p.m. ET: Charley Hull (Europe) vs. Paula Creamer (U.S.)

COFFIN: Hull is a world-class player at 17, but, like Lewis, Creamer has to win. She won't disappoint. U.S. WINS

MELL: Hull looks like she will be the new star of these matches for years to come, a delightfully fearless and talented 17-year-old. EUROPE WINS


Match 19 - 3 p.m. ET: Azahara Munoz (Europe) vs. Brittany Lang (U.S.)

COFFIN: Munoz has been sneaky good this week and never gives her opponents much room for error. EUROPE WINS

MELL: Should be a very good match, but Munoz is having an excellent Solheim Cup and really excels in match play. EUROPE WINS


Match 20 - 3:10 p.m. ET: Carlota Ciganda (Europe) vs. Morgan Pressel (U.S.)

COFFIN: Could be the biggest blowout of the day. Pressel is a match-play machine. U.S. WINS

MELL: Pressel is a past U.S. Women’s Amateur champ who has never lost a Solheim Cup singles match. She thrives in the format. U.S. WINS


Match 21 - 3:20 p.m. ET: Caroline Hedwall (Europe) vs. Michelle Wie (U.S.)

COFFIN: Best match of the day for long-bombing sluggers. Hedwall's perfect 4-0 record is on the line. EUROPE WINS

MELL: Hedwall has a chance to become the first player to go 5-0 in Solheim Cup history. She’s on every element of her game. EUROPE WINS


Match 22 - 3:30 p.m. ET: Catriona Matthew (Europe) vs. Gerina Piller (U.S.)

COFFIN: Matthew is such a wily veteran in situations like these that she knows how important her match is. EUROPE WINS

MELL: Matthew routed Paula Creamer 6 and 5 last year. The Solheim Cup rookie Gerina Piller has her hands full. EUROPE WINS


Match 23 - 3:40 p.m. ET: Suzann Pettersen (Europe) vs. Lizette Salas (U.S.)

COFFIN: Pettersen is right in the perfect position to earn the Solheim Cup clinching point for Europe. EUROPE WINS

MELL: Pettersen is the face of this European team, an intimidating Solheim Cup warrior. EUROPE WINS


Match 24 - 3:50 p.m. ET: Giulia Sergas (Europe) vs. Jessica Korda (U.S.)

COFFIN: Sergas has played only one match and Korda has enough stuff to overpower this match. U.S. WINS

MELL: Korda seems comfortable in the Solheim spotlight, and that gives her an advantage on Sergas, who has played one match so far this week. U.S. WINS


Match 25 - 4 p.m. ET: Caroline Masson (Europe) vs. Lexi Thompson (U.S.)

COFFIN: This match could go either way, both have played well at times, poorly at times. U.S. WINS

MELL: Thompson’s ball striking has been phenomenal this week, her putting good enough for Sunday. U.S. WINS


Match 26 - 4:10 p.m. ET: Jodi Ewart Shadoff (Europe) vs. Brittany Lincicome (U.S.)

COFFIN: Shadoff did her part Saturday in fourballs but her work isn't done yet. She's so steady. EUROPE WINS

MELL: Shadoff was brilliant leading that Saturday afternoon fourballs sweep, gaining confidence that carries into Sunday. EUROPE WINS


Match 27 - 4:20 p.m. ET: Beatriz Recari (Europe) vs. Angela Stanford (U.S.)

COFFIN: Stanford is 0-3 in these matches and faces a tough opponent. Sadly, this match won't matter. EUROPE WINS

MELL: Recari’s all-around game will be tough to beat. Stanford can’t seem to find her usual strengths in this format. EUROPE WINS


Match 28 - 4:30 p.m. ET: Karine Icher (Europe) vs. Cristie Kerr (U.S.)

COFFIN: Kerr is here in case the cup hasn't been determined but it will be by then. Bummer. U.S. WINS

MELL: Icher is impressing in this Solheim Cup, her closing putt to seal the Euro sweep gives her terrific momentum against tough-minded Kerr. EUROPE WINS
