CASARES, Spain — The struggle had been all too real for Team Europe’s Emily Kristine Pedersen on the first day of the 2023 Solheim Cup.
After losing 5-and-4 alongside Charley Hull to Americans Ally Ewing and Cheyenne Knight in Friday morning’s foursomes session, the Dane was sent back out to play with Maja Stark in the afternoon fourball session and proceeded to struggle.
Until the 12th hole.
A few players had played the slope from off the green on the par 3 to get close to the hole, but nobody did so better than Pedersen. She landed her ball in the perfect spot and watched it turn right and roll into the bottom of the cup. The ace is just the second in Solheim Cup history as Pedersen joins teammate and assistant caption Anna Nordqvist, who was the first to accomplish the feat in 2013.
Pedersen is making her third appearance for Team Europe this week and carries a 3-5-0 record.
