This week during captain Juli Inkster’s visit to Gleneagles, site of the 2019 Solheim Cup, she let one of her team's secrets slip. The three-time captain of Team U.S.A. brought along on the trip her long-time friend Pat Hurst, who she revealed on Instagram will be joining her as assistant captain in 2019.
