Team USA wins the 2019 PING Junior Solheim Cup after an inspired effort to thwart Team Europe’s comeback bid. This victory cements Team USA’s fourth consecutive win in the biennial tournament. Representing Team USA were four Junior Tour members: Rose Zhang, Zoe Campos, Briana Chacon, and Brianna Navarrosa.
Team USA wasted no time on Tuesday, jumping out to a quick 7.5 – 4.5 lead. The morning foursomes were a draw 3-3, but Team USA found success in the fourball format going 4.5 – 1.5.
Wednesday’s singles format was a nail-biter, with Team Europe threatening a comeback. Team USA showed resolve and ended up clinching the victory 13-11. It was Brianna Navarros who won the winning point with a win against Mimi Rhodes 1-up.
American Captain Mary Bea Porter-King said: “‘It was quite the victory, very close, it went up and down all day, they were ahead, then behind. I’m exhausted and I didn’t hit a shot.
