I expected this might happen, after she withdrew from the British Open. Shows me she has a lot of class and regard for her Solheim teammates. I'm not sure whether this becomes another captain's pick or a ripple effect of adding Lizette Salas on Solheim Cup points, then adding Angel Yin via Rolex ranking, and then Juli picks a new captain's pick to replace Yin. I guess it amounts to the same thing!! Inkster also has a secret pick that she will use if one of the 12 players becomes ill or injured during the matches. I wonder if Juli would name Nelly Korda as Jessica's replacement.

When Inkster made her 2 captains picks she also made a third alternate pick. This pick was not disclosed. That pick will replace Korda.

One Korda should replace the other.

Not a fan,but massive respect to Jessica Korda for withdrawing.Some players would have gone,let their team down badly and then been a massive drama queen about it.

She'll have plenty more opportunities ;now she can cheer on her sister.

Unless Juli Inkster does something very stupid.

*cough*Paula Creamer*cough*
