Reporter Gyu-Bin Hong = Susan Petersen (42, Norway) will lead the European team at the Solheim Cup, the ‘US-Europe women’s golf competition’ to be held next year.

This is the second consecutive year as the general manager following the competition in September this year.

According to ESPN on the 22nd, Pettersen was appointed as the general manager of the European team for the Solheim Cup, which will be held at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Virginia next year.

Originally, the Solheim Cup was held every two years in odd-numbered years, but in order not to overlap with the Ryder Cup, the ‘men’s golf competition between Europe and the United States,’ it was decided to hold the tournament next year.

This is because the Ryder Cup, which was previously held in even years, was held in 2021 in the aftermath of the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) in 2020. 먹튀검증

Accordingly, the Ryder Cup and the Solheim Cup will be held simultaneously in September this year.

Pettersen said she “has been able to establish a more consistent team strategy and philosophy (her second consecutive year as general manager),” and she will “focus on getting the players right and raising their level.”

Pettersen has 15 wins, including two of her majors, on the US Women’s Professional Golf (LPGA) Tour and seven on the European Women’s Professional Golf Tour (LET).

In the Solheim Cup, she played 36 matches in a total of 9 appearances, winning 18, drawing 6 and losing 12.

Stacey Lewis (USA), the team leader of the US team, will also take over as the team leader from this year until next year.
