The 12th edition of the PING Junior Solheim Cup starts next week and takes place at La Zagaleta, Spain, from September 18-19.
After causing an upset in 2021 on away soil, Team Europe will battle against Team USA in the biennial competition – which began in 2002 – with the best female amateurs aged 18 and under taking part.
Just like the Solheim Cup, each team consists of 12 players comprised of automatic qualifiers and captain’s picks.
In Team Europe’s case, the squad is comprised of the top six ranked players from the PJSC qualifying events as well as six captain’s picks.
Four-time Solheim Cup star Gwladys Nocera from France will captain the side after being announced back in June.
