Five burning questions heading into Sunday at the Solheim Cup

Earlier in the day, Kerr had become the leading points victor in US Solheim Cup history, with 19, as she and Thompson thumped Shadoff and Caroline Masson, 5&3. Heading into Sunday singles at Des Moines Golf and Country Club, the USA leads 10.5-5.5.

United States captain Juli Inkster said she did not care about the significance of her team's fightback.

'I didn't know Georgia at all until we got here but she's been a superstar these past two days, ' said Nordqvist.

Catriona Matthew, the 47-year-old Scot who was set to serve as a vice captain for Annika Sorenstam, tool Pettersen's place in the event that begins Friday at Des Moines Golf and Country Club.

The United States took a commanding and surely conclusive lead in the Solheim Cup yesterday, when they extended their overnight lead over Europe of three points to five. Creamer was miffed at herself for poor course management on the 15th hole even though they were 2 up at the time.

None of us will ever forget the Miracle of Medinah, but this will take something of a completely different order of magnitude if Europe is to walk away with anything.

In the morning, the US got off to a blazing start to the proceedings when Lexi Thompson drove the first green in the opening match of the morning foursome matches to kick off the 15th playing of the biennial games.

It will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor coupled with Adreno 540 GPU and 6GB of RAM. The Mi MIX with the ceramic body is also highly fragile and we have broken our own Mi MIX display.

Europe's Anna Nordqvist and Georgia Hall beat Stacy Lewis and Gerina Piller 2-and-1, while Catriona Matthew and Karine Icher also won 2-and-1 over Danielle Kang and Michelle Wie of the U.S.

And, having missed out on those two previous events at Dalmahoy in 1992 then Loch Lomond eight years later, how appropriate that would be for Matthew to bring down the curtain on her splendid career in the biggest tournament by far in the women's game. "The simultaneous report by the Milwaukee Bucks and Giannis Antetokounmpo himself, by phone and social media from faraway China, and not by the appropriate official manner, of his inability to join the national men's team saddens us. but is not surprising", the federation said in the statement. Salas opened with three straight birdies to win those holes, and wins on consecutive par 5s helped the two end the match in 13 holes.

Fellow Solheim Cup rookie Hall, of England, and the experienced Anna Nordqvist were clinical in beating Austin Ernst and Paula Creamer 3&1. "We just tried to go out and play the best for our team".

Europe's Charley Hull was forced out of the fourballs owing to a wrist injury.

The English duo were two shots clear after the 13th hole but the resilient Kerr kept her cool to sink a decisive birdie putt on the 18th. "I just gave her the opportunities and she was just rolling the ball".

NOTES: Sunday's scheduled tee times for the final day of the Solheim Cup were moved up two hours based on the threat of inclement weather. "I have fighters on the team, and I believe in them".
