European Solheim Cup Captain announces vice-captains’ lineup for 2024 event

Posted : 28 February 2024

European Solheim Cup captain Suzann Pettersen announced her selection of Anna Nordqvist, Laura Davies, Caroline Martens, and Mel Reid as her four vice-captains for the upcoming biennial event in September.


Nordqvist, Davies, and Martens will retain their roles as vice-captains from the 2023 edition, where Team Europe successfully defended the Solheim Cup. England's Mel Reid, who served as a vice-captain in 2019, joins them in the leadership team.


The Solheim Cup, returning to even-numbered years, is scheduled for its 19th edition in Gainesville, Virginia, from September 13-15. Pettersen expressed her excitement, stating, "After last year's success, why change a winning team! I'm excited to be able to have the same team by my side but also with the great addition of Mel." Reid, a seven-time Ladies Tour titleholder, has represented Europe in the Solheim Cup four times since her debut in 2011.


Mel Reid shared her enthusiasm, emphasizing her deep connection to the Solheim Cup and Team Europe, stating, "Everyone knows how much the Solheim Cup means to me and how much I love being part of it and Team Europe. It brings out passion and shows the best of what golf has to offer."


In a parallel move, US captain Stacy Lewis had named major champions Morgan Pressel, Angela Stanford, Paula Creamer, and Brittany Lincicome as her assistants last week. The US team, seeking their first title since 2017, is gearing up for the highly anticipated competition against Team Europe in September.
