U.S. regains Solheim Cup
EDINA, Minn. -- It took 12 players to bring the Solheim Cup back to the United States. It took one to show what the tournament is all about.
Against the odds, Wendy Ward matched the best player in the world, Annika Sorenstam, shot for shot Sunday and came out with a draw.
It was the symbolic centerpiece of America's 151⁄2-121⁄2; comeback victory over Europe, a win that earned captain Patty Sheehan and her crew the honor of bringing home the most coveted prize in women's golf.
America trailed 9-7 heading into Sunday, but won seven matches, lost two and split three to surpass the 141⁄2; points it needed to win the cup.
