Anyone but Mallon. She turned the team into a summer camp for grade schoolers.

I very much doubt Mallon would be Capt next time.

But, in fairness to Meg, this year was really no different in the US silly stuff than the prior two Solheims when Rosie was capt in 2011 and Beth D in 2009.

Maybe it was a bit more obvious this year because the Americans were losing at home and the "antics" looked stupid.

Of course the rule wouldn't have existed long ago. I thought I read about it being a change made maybe three or four years ago.

After the beat downs the last two cups, a change needs to be made... no more being "one of the girls". Personally, though I've never been a fan of Pepper, I think a little bit of, as you put it, "Green Beret type" is exactly what's needed. Our team seemed too involved with other things than golf and needs a return to concentrating why they're there.

Where was Inkster during the 2013 Cup? Even Laura Davies showed up in Colorado as well as every other potential future captain from both teams.

Inskter should be the next captain, unless they decide to bring Meg back. On the European side if Laura Davies doesn't want it, Annika should be next.
