U.S. maintain three-point Solheim Cup lead

Solheim Cup Trophy

Cristie Kerr has helped the US take a 7½ to 4½ lead over Europe in the Solheim Cup on Saturday and set a record for points by an American in the event. She became the USA's all-time leading points scorer with 19, overtaking the current team captain Juli Inkster's haul of 18 ½.

Trailing 7.5 - 4.5, Europe needed more than they got later in the day.

Europe's captain Sorenstam said the United States side played great, but remained upbeat about fighting back.

"And we had everybody go to the first tee this morning, just to get a feel for it, and now they're all ready to play". She gave us hard hats to start the week.

"The spirit is still there, if not stronger".

"I glanced at my dad on the last hole, and you can see a smile from ear to ear, like he was so proud", she said. "I have fighters on the team, and I believe in them. And I believe in them". Salas was a major reason USA captain Juli Inkster, another Californian, and the home side took a 5½-2½ lead.

The English star had her wrist wrist strapped up midway through Friday's fourballs as she and Hall slipped to a 2&1 loss against Stacy Lewis and Gerina Piller, and European captain Annika Sorenstam has wisely made a decision to omit Hull from her foursomes line-up for day two. A golfer that loves team competition and match play so much, that they always manage to raise their game for it.

Kerr holed out from a sand trap on No. 15 for an eagle that essentially sealed the match - though Matthew missed a long putt that would've extended it by less than a foot. I just want to help our team win.

Scaramucci Calls Bannon A White House Leaker On Colbert's 'Late Show'
"I don't think he's a white supremacist, although I've never asked him if he's a white supremacist". It has spilled over into the media outlets connected to the two men, pitting Breitbart vs.

Yin, a first-time Cup player, and Salas, who's playing for the second time, rolled past Carlota Ciganda of Spain and Emily Pedersen of Denmark 6 and 5 with the match ending on the 13th hole when it was halved by pars from all four players.

The home pair were nine under when the match finished, and not far behind were Brittany Lang and Brittany Lincicome in beating Florentyna Parker from England and Germany's Caroline Masson. Thompson's response? A three wood to 12ft and Kerr rolled in the putt for an eagle two.

"We wanted everybody to get a chance to play today".

The Americans only win of the first day's morning session came when Kang and Salas beat Ciganda and Masson, 1 up.

"I've been waiting six years for this", Salas said of being able to partner with Kang.

Similarly, Hall took to this event like a duck to water as the Englishwoman marked her debut with an equally impressive victory.

The best performance of the European came from the Swedes Anna Nordqvist and Hall, who have won their battle against Paula Creamer Austin Ernst, by three strokes.

But it was Catriona Matthew, playing alongside Karine Icher from France, who stole a win in the anchor match to give Europe a slender 2.5-1.5 lead. "I thought we played great this morning and we played awesome this afternoon". Sorenstam and her troops will need to say some prayers to those golfing gods if they are to conjure an equally flabbergasting feat.
