Solheim Cup 2023 – Celebrate with Top Equipment & Apparel Picks for Female Golfers

The Solheim Cup is heading to Spain this weekend for the first time in the event’s history. As Team Europe looks to continue its winning streak against Team USA, we’re taking a look at what makes this rivalry so intense, and also giving you our top 2023 picks for golf apparel and equipment for women in Autumn/Winter 2023.

Unpacking the Match Play Format…

Today, the Solheim Cup follows the same format as the men’s Ryder Cup. Two teams, each consisting of 12 players, one captain and three assistant captains take on three days of competition.

Day 1 & 2 – Morning Foursome Matches and Afternoon Four-Ball Matches

 “Foursome” play is a match where two golfers from one team compete against two golfers from the opposing team. Each team plays one ball and the players alternate shots until the hole is played out.

“Four-Ball” is a match where each member of the two-player team plays her own ball. Four balls are in play on each hole. The lowest score from each team will be the score for that team.

Day 3 – Singles Matches

On the final day all twelve of the USA Team Members will compete against one of the twelve Team Europe players. Each will play her own ball.

Solheim Cup Memories since 1990…

Since its inception in 1990, the Solheim Cup has come to represent one of the greatest rivalries in women’s sport. This year Team Europe captain Suzann Pettersen is hoping she can lead her team to a historic three-peat at Finca Cortesin in Andalucia.

“Catriona [Matthew, winning captain in 2019 and 2021,] didn’t want to three-peat,” Pettersen told reporters ahead of this year’s event. “I told her she should but she said, ‘No, I’ve done two. That’s enough. You can take over.’ Those are some big shoes to fill. She was a great captain. Very authentic, very transparent, and that’s extremely important.”

“But I feel like I have enough experience to take the role. The one thing that I really want is for the players to know that I’ll have their back, no matter what, through thick and thin. That’s really important to me. That’s probably my most important role.”

On the USA’s side this year is captain Stacy Lewis. At 38-years-old, Lewis is the youngest ever American captain and is hoping to be able to lead her team to a much-needed victory.

“I think Europe’s the favourite,” Lewis told reporters earlier this week. “They have won the last two, we’re on their soil and they have a great team that has a ton of experience in this event.” Adding, “So you look at history and, you know, it doesn’t bode well for us. But I love our chances. I love these rookies. I think they’re going to have a great week and hopefully surprise a lot of people.”

You can watch all the Solheim Cup action exclusively on Sky Sports Golf from Friday 22 September – Sunday 24 September.
