The U.S. leads Europe, 5-3, after Day 1 of the Solheim Cup, thanks in large part to its performance in the morning foursomes.
The Americans swept the alternate-shot format, 4-0, and they will send out three of the same teams in Friday’s foursomes. So, too, will Europe.
The only difference for the United States will be Lilia Vu and Jennifer Kupcho teaming. Neither played foursomes on Day 1. The sole change for the home team is Emily Kristine Pedersen and Carlota Ciganda. Pedersen teamed with Charley Hull in the first session and lost, 5 and 4. Ciganda sat out the opening frame.
While there are multiple duplicate teams, there are no repeat matches from Day 1 foursomes.
