Off the tee, it looked like American Ally Ewing had the upper hand in her match with Europe’s Madelene Sagstrom, winning No. 1 with par and holding a 1-up advantage through seven holes. But the Swede took her first lead thanks to a birdie at No. 10 and cruised home, winning 15 and 16 to capture a 3-and-2 win.
“I haven't really contributed until today. I was saying on the range this morning, hold on a second, I need to be myself. I need to be myself out there,” said Sagstrom, whose only career Solheim Cup points have come in singles. “I can't play somebody else's game. I can't be somebody else's character. I need to be myself, and I really found that today. I grinded hard.”
