Theses aren't necessarily the best 12 Americans or my personal favorites because I like their charity work or think their parents are nice. They're not always the the best in weekly tournaments. These are the best at Solheim Cup play, I think.

I would take (in alphabetical order):

Creamer
V Hurst (would insist she use a real caddy, not her mother)
Inkster (would try to talk her into it)
Kerr
Kim
Lewis
Lincicome
McPherson
Pressel
Stanford
Ward
Wie

St.JX....You're leaving Sophie G off? Lots of Solheim experience there.

Not all are currently in the top 30 in the standings.

LoJo,I'm going with youth over experience.

What I have got,six rookies in that team?

Sophie Gustafson does have a vast amount of Solheim Cup experience,but her recent outings haven't been anything to shout about.I've no problem with Sophie being on the team,but I wouldn't choose someone simply because they had experience.

In time,we all must give way to youth.

I haven't got Alfie,Stupples or Moodie in the team,either.

Fortunately for those 'senior' players,I don't get to pick the team.I'm fairly certain that Alison Nicholas will choose, at least,three veterans with her four captain's picks.

If Reid,Lagoutte-Clement and Muņoz make the team by right,I'd expect Gustafson,Moodie and Stupples to get the Nicholas stamp of approval...

It's a long way off, but I'm going out on a limb to pick Stacy Lewis as the star of the 2011 Solheim Cup.

As long as she's the star on the losing side,I'd be delighted if your prediction came true...:wavey:
