Laura Diaz Solheim Assistant

Meg Mallon names Laura Diaz as second Solheim Cup assistant.

It sounds like the hatchet has not totally been buried between Diaz and Pepper. Also, Diaz says she plans to play a full season this year and hopes to be a playing member of the team...

I was very surprised by this. I remember after Chokin'freakin'dog - gate, Diaz said she would never speak to Pepper again.

Whatever.

This seems a classic case of hope over expectation.

She's not even on the points list ; and she has her work cut out for her if she wants to get one of the two spots available through the Rolex rankings,as she's currently 312th in the world.

Tiger Woods would struggle to make the team from that far back...

When did they change the scoring? It used to be top 10 plus two captains picks. Now they are saying top 8 plus two top from world rankings plus two Captains picks.

This is the first Solheim that they are using 2 Rolex picks in place of 2 of the captain's picks.

sjh...The selection qualification was changed in 2011 to be implemented in 2013.

It's also a bit more in line with the Euro selection of 4 from the LET points list, 4 from the Rolex WR, and 4 capts picks.
