Less than 12 miles down the road from Colorado Golf Club, home of the 2013 Solheim Cup, are 24 junior golfers: 12 American, 12 European. These young women dream of one day walking down the same fairways as the professional golfers who will tee it up at the premier team event in women’s golf.
These 24 juniors will represent their countries at PING Junior Solheim Cup, a junior event that mirrors the Solheim Cup. The prestigious field of future collegiate and professional stars hold titles to some of the most prestigious junior golf events worldwide, and they have all arrived in Englewood, Colo., with one common goal: taking home the Cup.
The tournament begins with morning and afternoon matches on Tuesday, with the following match play formats:
Four-Ball: In this team competition, two players play their better ball against the better ball of two other players.
Foursomes: In this team competition, two players play against two other players, and each side plays one ball. This format is also known as alternate shot.
The Cup will be decided by Singles Matches, Wednesday, Aug. 14.
Singles: One player from Team USA against one player from the Team Europe. Every player will compete in one singles match.
As both teams aim to capture the Cup, find out how to watch the action unfold at The Inverness Golf Club:
