Solheim Captain Reid Discusses Matthew

European Solheim Cup captain Dale Reid defended her selections, which didn't include Scotland's Catriona Matthew, as high winds and heavy rains limited practice.
'I think she's got every reason to be upset. The girl's a darn good golfer,' said Reid. 'And I am very disappointed that Catriona did not get in the team.
'I've gone with a side where I believe they're good match players. I would loved to have another Scot in the team, but there's nothing I feel I have to justify. I feel I've picked the winning side and that's what we have to go with.'
Matthew played in the 1998 event. This year's tourney will be played at Loch Lomond in Scotland.
