An 8-8 tie heading into Sunday singles at the Solheim Cup, considering the USA swept the Friday morning foursomes matches to take a quick 4-0 lead, is quite the turnaround. While the Americans certainly would have preferred a blowout, this all-square match should make for a dramatic day of golf. Every player goes out on Sunday, playing 18-hole singles matches. Of the 12 matches being played at Finca Cortesin on Sunday morning in Spain, these four stand out.

Solheim Cup 2023: Europeans erase US lead, head into Sunday singles tied, 8-8

Megan Khang vs Linn Grant, 7:10pm (AEST)

Khang hasn’t lost a match yet, going 2-0-1. Grant has also played well, going 3-1-0. The duo of Khang and Lexi Thompson delivered Grant her only loss this tournament, in Friday foursomes. At stake for both teams is getting points on the board early, establishing momentum.


Rose Zhang vs Leona Maguire, 7:22pm (AEST)

Zhang is a 20-year-old phenom who won her first pro tournament earlier this year. Maguire is playing in only her second Solheim Cup but is already a star in the biennial matches. Then there’s the added layer of intrigue as they played at two women’s college golf powerhouses: Zhang at Stanford University, Maguire at Duke.


Nelly Korda vs Carlota Ciganda, 9:10pm (AEST)

There’s nothing like playing well on home soil: Ciganda has won all three matches she’s played in Spain. The Spaniard loves the Solheim Cup and obviously hopes to ride her momentum into this match. But it’s hard to ever bet against Nelly Korda. Both these players have experience and grit.

Lexi Thompson vs Emily Kristine Pedersen, 9:22pm (AEST)

As a captain’s pick ranked 122nd in the world, Pedersen had a bit to prove when she got to Spain. Similarly, Thompson has not had a strong season and faced some questions before the Solheim Cup began. But both of these players have showed up. Thompson has gone 2-1-0 in her three matches, and Pedersen has played every match, going 2-1-1. Pedersen also made the second-ever ace in Solheim Cup history. With the overall match sitting all-square at the start of the day, there’s a chance it could all come down to this match.
