It seemed improbable.  Trailing 10-6 after the morning four-ball matches (delayed from Saturday) the United States team came back on Sunday afternoon in Germany to win the 2015 Solheim Cup over Team Europe.

The American squad captured 8.5 points of the 12 available in the afternoon singles to regain the Solheim Cup title for the first time since 2009.

The climb back into the contest started with a halved match between Lexi Thompson and a win by Morgan Pressel.

Also recording wins for the U.S. Squad was Alison Lee, Gerona Piller (who sank a crucial 10 foot putt t0 deny the Europeans the chance to retain the cup), Lizette Salas, Angela Stanford, Cristie Kerr, Michelle Wie and Paula Creamer.

The only European players to pick up full points in the singles were Melissa Reid, Karine Icher, Anna Norqvist, and a half point was earned by Carlota Chiganda in the match with Lexi Thompson.

"The girls were awesome. Everybody did their job. I couldn't be more proud of them," commented U.S Captain Juli Inkster.

Too bad about the bad sportsmanship on the 17th today.  After watching the video it looks like both teams made mistakes.....if they truly wanted her to putt that then the team Europe players should have not started walking off the green before she putted. They should have stood still and waited for the putt to be made or missed.

Hull said she was walking over to consult Pettersen on whether to concede it or not.  

It's match play, expect no concessions and expect your opponent to make every putt on you.

We had a strong player who is an HP rake back a putt of the same length (for par after he missed an 8 footer for birdie) last Monday in the PING Challenge Cup (HP's vs AP's in PGA of Ottawa) as the other pair was already on the move. He knew the mistake was his - the onus is on the player to make the putt, not the opponent to concede it...
