The 2023 Solheim Cup is taking place from tomorrow for three days, and thousands of people are set to flock to Malaga, Spain for the exciting event.

Spain has certainly been infected with golf fever as one of the most exciting and fiercely contested team tournaments hits these shores with Team Europe and Team USA set to clash over the weekend for Solheim Cup glory below is all you need to know as Europe look to defend their crown.

How The Solheim Cup Works

The competition brings together the 12 best players from the Ladies European Tour (LET) and the 12 best from the US Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) and the way the teams select their players is different for both.

For Team Europe, they have the two players who have topped the European Tour’s Solheim Cup points in 2023, then it’s the six highest-ranked players who are eligible, along with four captain’s picks.

Team USA, however, picks the top seven players on the LPGA’s Solheim Cup points list, the two top players from the Rolex Rankings, and then, of course, three picks from their respective captain.

The event itself takes place over three days and will be in Malaga this year. The first two days consist of a morning session of foursome matches (two golfers from each team pair up and take turns having s shot using the same ball), and also an afternoon session of four-ball matches with each member of a pair using their own ball, but only the lowest score is used for the overall team score.

The third, and final day, is all about the singles matches with all 12 members taking on someone from the other team there are 28 points in total up for grabs here, with a winner picking up one point, and each player getting a half-point in the case of a tie.

Lewis has picked 12 further players and the best that America has to offer as they look to build up some momentum heading into the Ryder Cup.
