- US Solheim Cup skipper Juli Inkster named Paula Creamer and Brittany Lang as her captain's picks, completing a 12-strong squad which will attempt to wrest back the title from Europe next month. Inkster said Creamer and Lang would give her team experience in their quest to defeat the powerful Europeans who won on US soil for the first time in 2013. Creamer's world ranking has slipped to 40th this season but she is third on the all-time list of American point scorers in the Solheim Cup. "I can't wait to get over to Germany and be a part of the team. It's always been the best memories competing for the US Solheim Cup team and now to play under Juli Inkster is pretty special," Creamer said.
