SUGAR GROVE, Ill. – American Solheim Cup rookie Brittany Lang was so intensely focused she didn’t realize she and Brittany Lincicome could close out their morning fourballs match when they reached the 14th tee.
“I had absolutely no idea that we needed to half that hole [to win],” Lang said. “I was so out to lunch. I mean, I had no clue.”
The Americans did half the hole to defeat Laura Davies and Becky Brewerton, 5 and 4.
“When they got done and they started shaking hands, I was like, 'Oh, my gosh, that's it?’ Honestly, I had no idea,” Lang said. “Brittany [Lincicome] knew, though. She's an experienced veteran.”
