FIREWORKS at the SOLHEIM CUP this weekend! TOTAL ECLIPSE of awesome golf!!!

GGG salutes the US team! 

Females play golf at the highest level of competitive golf when they are afforded competitive equity with their male counterparts!!!

From Ron Shirak:

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – Ultimately, the hill was too steep to climb, the hole dug the first four sessions too deep to escape. Europe got out to a fast start in Sunday singles play, but slowly red spread across the leaderboard. The five-point deficit was simply too big to erase and the United States won the Solheim Cup for the tenth time in 15 tries 16½ to 11½ at Des Moines Golf and Country Club.
Despite the final score, this Solheim Cup had more magical moments than a Penn and Teller show. On Friday, in the first shot she ever hit in the Solheim Cup, Danielle Kang urged the crowd to clap and cheer while she was hitting, and she did it again in Sunday singles play.
On Saturday, Brittany Lang and Brittany Lincicome shot 61 in their four-ball match against Mel Reid and Carlota Ciganda and still had to play all 18 holes to get the win.
And in an epic tussle on Sunday featuring 11 birdies and two eagles, Lexi Thompson and Anna Nordqvist halved the opening singles match, a truly fitting outcome in a match neither deserved to lose.
Sprinkled into all that was 18-year-old Angel Yin putting on a power display that had the galleries giggling in disbelief. Kang made putts from everywhere and even the rival captains – Juli Inkster and Annika Sorenstam – rocked out together to “Dancing Queen” on the first tee the final day.
Throw in the large, appreciative galleries and the incredible way the community embraced the event, making everyone feel welcome, and it was all reminiscent of the movie “Field of Dreams” when Kevin Costner is asked if this is heaven and he replied, “No, it’s Iowa.”
