17.08 Solheim Cup (oppdatert):
Tutta trakk seg fra Solheim Cup
Ryktene har gått et par dager, men nå er det offisielt.
Suzann Pettersen oppgir en ryggskade som årsak til at hun trekker seg fra
Solheim Cup denne uken. Golfsiden hørte disse ryktene for to dager siden, men nå
er det altså offisielt.
Hun skadet ryggen i forbindelse med en løpetur sist lørdag før hun skulle i
bryllup. Den lot seg ikke "reparere" i tide til Solheim Cup starter. Nå går hun
inn i rollen som visekaptein.
Tutta kunne ventet seg en del buing fra det amerikanske publikumet etter det som
skjedde i Solheim Cup sist. Men dette har vel de fleste lagt bak seg, slik at
dette ikke lenger er noen stor sak.
Her er en lang artikkel fra Golfsiden om saken den gangen:
Inn på laget i stedet for Tutta går Catriona Matthew.
Her er meldingen fra LET:
Catriona Matthew to replace Suzann Pettersen
on 2017 European Solheim Cup Team
DES MOINES, Iowa (August 16, 2017) – European Solheim Cup Captain Annika
Sörenstam announced today that Catriona Matthew will replace the injured Suzann
Pettersen at The 2017 Solheim Cup, being conducted this week at Des Moines Golf
& Country Club in West Des Moines, Iowa.
Sorenstam chose Matthew as her alternate when she selected her team following
the conclusion of the Ricoh Women’s British Open and informed the United States
team as required by the captains’ agreement.
Pettersen, an eight-time Solheim Cup participant, qualified to make her ninth
appearance for the European team through the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings.
She arrived in Des Moines on Monday evening after receiving treatment for a
recurrent slipped disc injury which occurred in Norway over the weekend. Despite
receiving further treatment from the team osteopath on site, she withdrew on
Wednesday morning due to experiencing persistent pain.
Pettersen said: “I have made this extremely difficult decision to help the
European team and give my team mates the best possible chance of success. There
was no guarantee that I would be fit to compete on Friday morning and I did not
want to play unless I was able to give 100 per cent. I truly love The Solheim
Cup and I will stay and support my team this week in whatever way I can.”
This will be Matthew’s ninth Solheim Cup appearance. She has earned 19 points
from 33 matches, played from 1998-2015 and was a member of three winning teams
in 2003, 2011 and 2013.
She famously holed the winning putt in The 2003 Solheim Cup at Barsebäck Golf
and Country Club in Sweden and secured the half point to win the Cup outright to
seal Europe’s first away victory at Colorado Golf Club in 2013.
Sörenstam said: “It's unfortunate that Suzann has to withdraw due to her back
injury. The Solheim Cup has been such an important part of her career. It was a
very tough decision, but I am proud of her and she will still be a leader this
“Catriona is a proven Solheim Cup performer who will be able to step right in
and play with anybody. She's ready to go.”
The 2017 Solheim Cup will get under way on Friday at 8am CT.
