Europe wins the Solheim Cup

The 6th Solheim Cup Match was held between 6 October and 8 October 2000 at Loch Lomond Golf Club, Luss, Dunbartonshire, Scotland. Team Europe won the trophy for the second time by a score of 14½ to 11½ points. Carin Koch holed the winning putt, coming back from three down to beat Michele Redman.

Teams[edit]

The European team consisted of seven automatic qualifiers and five wild card picks from Captain Dale Reid.[1] The US team consisted of 10 automatic qualifiers and two picks from Captain Pat Bradley.[2]

Format[edit]

A total of 26 points were available, divided among three periods of team play, followed by one period of singles play. The first period, on Friday morning, was four rounds of foursomes. This was repeated in the second period on Friday afternoon. The third period on Saturday was six rounds of fourballs in which all 24 players (12 from each team) took part. The final 12 points were decided in a round of singles matchplay. This was a slight change from the 1998 format and was not kept, as the 2002 match reverted to the 1998 format.
