Former world No. 1 Stacey Lewis (USA) will serve as the head of the US team for the Solheim Cup, a US-Europe women’s golf competition.
The LPGA Tour announced on the 14th (Korean time) that it had appointed Lewis as the general manager of the U.S. team for the Solheim Cup, which will be held in the U.S. next year.
Lewis has already been appointed general manager to lead the US team in this year’s Solheim Cup, which will be held in Spain in September. At 37 this year, she is the youngest ever captain of the Solheim Cup USA team. 스포츠토토
The Solheim Cup is held every two years. However, it was decided to hold it in 2023 and 2024 consecutively so that it would not be held in the same year as the Ryder Cup, a men’s golf Europe-US competition. As the Ryder Cup, which was held in even years, was postponed to 2021 due to the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19), the Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup will be held at the same time this year.
Lewis overcame her scoliosis and racked up 13 wins on her LPGA Tour, including two majors. She was World No. 1 in 2013 and 2014 and LPGA Tour Player of the Year in 2012 and 2014. Her Solheim Cup appearances are 4 times in her career.
Lewis said, “When she first took over [she was the head coach of the Solheim Cup], I thought she was the pinnacle of my life, and I am so grateful and honored that she got a second chance.”
