European captain Catriona Matthew will take a veteran core to Scotland to meet the Americans next month in the Solheim Cup. Anne van Dam of the Netherlands is the only “rookie” among the eight players who locked up spots with qualifying concluding in Sunday’s finish to the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open. Van Dam, an LPGA rookie and four-time LET winner, finished strong, tying for sixth to secure one of the three roster spots off the Ladies European Tour points list. Spain’s Carlota Ciganda finished first in points, van Dam second and Sweden’s Caroline Hedwall third.
