As I predicted early this morning, the match between Creamer and Davies set the tone for today’s final action at the Solheim Cup. Paula went out fast, shooting a front nine score of 30, by stuffing one iron shot after another, to take a commanding lead in her match at the turn; she cruised to a 7 & 5 victory over an LPGA Hall of Famer. Similarly, the entire US team got off to a very fast start, winning the first five matches to put themselves in a great position to capture the 6 1/2 points they needed in singles to capture back the Cup.

But Europe played tough in the later matches and still made the finish exciting; the match between Meg Mallon and Karen Stupples became the key deciding match. Stupples made a great par and birdie on 14 and 15, but Mallon made great pars on 16 and 17 to clinch her match and to secure point number 7 for the US Team. USA, USA, USA….

Too bad few were watching on this crowded sports weekend.
