Europe won the Soheim Cup on American soil for the first time that day in 2013, beating the United States 18-10 in Colorado.

Led by captain Liselotte Neumann, Team Europe needed four points early in the day to successfully defend the title they had won in Ireland two years earlier.

Sweden’s Caroline Hedwall sank a birdie putt on the 18th, earning a singles win over USA’s Michelle Wie and earning the point Europe needed to retain the trophy.

Scotland’s Catriona Matthew cemented the win shortly thereafter by scoring a half in her match against Gerina Piller.

Team Europe managed to win back-to-back titles with six of the 12 players making their Matchplay tournament debut, and Neumann was delighted with the performance.

“You all made me proud,” she said.

“It was just a total team effort. Everyone played well, everyone was really helpful.”

England duo Charley Hull and Jodi Ewart Shadoff were among the rookies to make their debuts, both sealing victories in singles on Sunday, and Hull claimed she didn’t feel nervous during the tournament.

She said: “To be honest I wasn’t that nervous because that’s how I always see golf.

“I won’t die if I miss it. Just hit it and find it and hit it again.”
