2019 Solheim Cup - USA Team

With a number of tournaments, including two majors, before the USA Solheim Cup is determined / chosen, it appears certain that there will be a number of new faces this year (and a number of old faces not making the team). At this point, only Lexi Thompson, Nelly Korda, Danielle Kang, and Jessica Korda are sure things. Lizette Salas, Megan Khang, Marina Alex, and Cristie Kerr are also in the top 8 on points, but Angel Yin, Brittany Altomare, Angela Stanford, Annie Park, and Ernst. could move into the top eight or get positions 9 and 10 based on Rolex standings.

Positions 11 and 12 are Juli's captains picks In Juli's Solheim blog, she expressed that she would like to have the two recent moms, Stacy Lewis and Gerina Piller, paired.


I will use this thread to keep everyone up to data on the future team makeup.

Feel free to make your own predictions.

I don't feel qualified to discuss Team Europe. Perhaps LPGAIreland is willing to do so.

With Brittany Altomare's fifth place finish this week, she jumped over Cristie Kerr and Angel Yin into 8th place in the Solheim point standings.

A lot of movement among the team players and hope-to-be players. Nelly and Kang switched places, Salas and Jessica switched places, and Alex and Khang switched places.
#1 is still Lexi, and Altomare is in 8th place. However, Ally McDonald is only 7 points behind Altomare.


We won't know who takes the two Rolex ranking places until tomorrow. It was Angel Yin at #31 followed by Annie Park at #39, but Austin Ernst at #40 is in a virtual tie with Park.


I know some are pushing for Morgan Pressel to get one of the Captain's picks, but Ally McDonald and Austin Ernst are so close to the players right above them that it would seem unfair to skip over either of them.

And, it seems to me that Paula Creamer, Gerna Piller, and Stacy Lewis have not played well enough to be considered for the 2019 team.


Maybe the Scottish Open and CP Canadian Open will clarify the situation for the USA team.

Brittany Altomare held on to the 8th spot in the Solheim points. The 8 players are as follows: Lexi Thompson, Nelly Korda, Danielle Kang, Lizette Salas, Jessica Korda, Marina Alex, Megan Khang, and Brittany Altomare.

We'll know the two golfers who qualify by Rolex points tomorrow - Angel Yin will be one and I think either Annie Park or Austin Ernst will be the other. The hottest USA golfer right now is Lizette Salas.

Inkster choosing two experienced golfers.
