Morgan Pressel earns her way onto US Solheim Cup team; Michelle Wie picked for 2nd time
ST. ANDREWS, Scotland – Morgan Pressel played her way onto another Solheim Cup team in the Women's British Open. Michelle Wie is returning as a captain's pick.
The American team was completed Sunday at St. Andrews when Pressel tied for fourth and bumped Jennifer Johnson from the last of two spots through the world ranking. Mallon took Wie and Solheim Cup rookie Gerina Piller as her captain's picks.
European captain Liselotte Neumann used one of her four picks on 17-year-old Charley Hull of England, making her the youngest player in Solheim Cup history. The other picks went to Jodi Ewart Shadoff of England, Caroline Hedwall of Sweden and Giula Sergas of Italy.
It marks the first time Laura Davies will not play in the Solheim Cup team since the matches began in 1990.
