(Golf) Inkster at helm for 2015 Solheim Cup
(03-20 10:21)

Juli Inkster, a seven-time major champion with 31 LPGA triumphs, will captain the United States team at the 2015 Solheim Cup biennial women's golf matches against Europe, the LPGA announced.
Inkster, a nine-time Solheim Cup player, will try to help the Americans reclaim the trophy after Europe's 18-10 triumph last August at Colorado Golf Club, the first European victory on US soil.
The Americans, losers of two in a row, still own an 8-5 edge in the all-time rivalry entering next year's edition of the event at St. Leon-Rot in Germany on September 18-20.
Her overall Cup record is 15-12 with seven halved and in 2011 she became the oldest player in Solheim Cup history, three months beyond her 51st birthday.—AFP
