Solheim Cup: Suzann Pettersen putt was golf’s ultimate mic drop

That was the greatest in sporting drama.
Let us just start with the headline grabber, Suzann Pettersen, who produced the mic fall. To hole the winning putt at a Solheim Cup had been an event that, despite the majors as well as the multiple wins on the LPGA Tour and elsewhere, has defined her career.
Pettersen had achieved a lot in the Solheim Cup. We have seen her return from five down with five to play to snatch a half-point from Michele Redman there was that the victory along with Annika Sorenstam in her homeland.
The pep talk with Caroline Hedwall at Ireland and Azahara Munoz made drama to match Gleneagles, before the controversy in Germany on the putt that wasn’t awarded was that the standout moment of their 2015 competition. She needed to pull out in Des Moines just days before the beginning, but got her distinctive second now around.
I predicted Pettersen’s pick by Catriona Matthew as”controversial” on the day it was declared, though I did add that if anyone could deal with the strain such a choice brings, it’d be the Norwegian. However, for a player who returned July following 20 month maternity leave, that just made one cut to get exactly what she did? Nah, no one could have predicted that!
When you haven’t listened to this Sky Sports podcast build until the Solheim, it may be worth going back to listen to Suzann’s interview to get an understanding why she is quitting golf. There is a little where she talks about just how during her career, she’d often get up in the middle of the night with swing thoughts and pregnancy leave was.
Pettersen said it was a relief to have a year of not thinking about golf. She’s a gorgeous little boy and if she’s decided she needs Herman to become her attention, then power to her. She will be missed.
It’d be erroneous to reflect at Gleneagles on the three times and make it all. Why she would be the attention, but you can understand. Not because the 1991 Ryder Cup at Kiawah Island, includes a Ryder Cup or Solheim Cup come to this contest’s final putt.
Americans are very patriotic with everything happened, but with bumped into some of my colleagues in the aftermath on Sunday evening, all were thrilled. A play such as this, A competition like this, can be in showcasing women’s golfing at a positive light and to whet the appetite for Solheim Cups to emerge great.
There might be a knock-on impact for the Ladies European Tour if simply. I will sit here and write how the LET can build with this and build events around Europe’s celebrities. But I’m sure, I was saying something and it never happened.
Now’s not the time the time to be getting into the play argument that is slow. That is some thing for your game’s government to deal with, although yes, it had been slow at times.
Until there’s a willingness to speed the game up and also have officials ready to penalise the players correctly, it won’t change. The thing that is key now is to celebrate a team performance directed authoritative priest, calm and by a likable at Catriona Matthew.
When Anne van Dam and Charley Hull dropped out at the 18th, I believed Europe’s chances had gone. However, at Killeen Castle, once the scores had been tied heading to the singles, the base three games – with Pettersen in the thick of it all of swung Europe’s way.
There was a lot to savour from the putts at 16 and 15, on the day out of Bronte Law into the calmness in attitude and match from Celine Boutier. Hall took the world out No 3 to end her week with Carlota Ciganda headed to win the match and a 100 percent record. Let’s not forget Team USA either, that played their part for the ages in a Solheim.
On the Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio, for the 2021 competition. With a name like that, perhaps Matthew may fancy a different captaincy. If not Dame Laura Davies? She has said she wouldn’t be but she also wasn’t too excited about the character and altered her mind there. Over for you, Laura.
