Congratulations Juli Inkster

 Congratulations Juli Inkster the 2015 United States Solheim Cup team Captain. Juli is the all-time leader in points earned for the U.S. with a 15-12-7 record in nine Solheim Cup appearances. Number 10 should be the charm in bringing the trophy back to the United States. Of course we are partial to her captaincy as her ties to EWGA are strong – as a former EWGA Member-Get-A-Member Honorary Chair.

Hats off to Pat Hurst being named assistant Captain to the 2015 Solheim Cup team.

Stay tuned for EWGA’s 2014 Solheim Cup Experience at St. Leon-Rot golf course in Germany. The venue is located near Heidelberg and only an hour’s drive away from Frankfurt. Details are forth coming. Go Team USA!
