The Solheim Cup (8th) (Sept 12-14). USA vs Europe. 12 top women professionals per team competing over three days days in eight foursome matches, eight fourballs and 12 singles. Non-playing captains: Catrin Nilsmark (Swe/Europe); Patty Sheehan (USA). [Ocean course, Barsebäck G&CC, nr Malmö, Sweden; at the time called the Masters course].
Overall result: Europe 17.5, USA 10.5.
Sunday singles (twelve 18-hole matches; home player stated first): Janice Moodie (Scot) bt Kelli Kuehne 3&2; Carin Koch (Swe) lost to Juli Inkster 5&4; Sophie Gustafson (Swe) bt Heather Bowie 5&4; Iben Tinning (Den) bt Wendy Ward 2&1; Ana Belén Sánchez (Esp) lost to Michele Redman 3&1; Catriona Matthew (Scot) bt Rosie Jones 3&1; Annika Sörenstam (Swe) bt Angela Stanford 3&2; Suzann Pettersen (Nor) lost to Cristie Kerr 1 hole; Laura Davies (Eng) bt Meg Mallon 1 hole; Mhairi McKay (Scot) bt Laura Diaz 1 hole; Patricia Meunier-Lebouc (Fra) bt Kelly Robbins 1 hole.
Note: bizzarely for matches of this importance, it was decided that once Catriona Matthew holed the winning European putt in her match with Rosie Jones, the other four matches still being played would all be stopped and conceded by the person trailing. In all other major international competition it is usual to play all individual matches to a conclusion, irrespective of the team score.
Following the postponement by a year of the 2001 Ryder Cup (due to the 9/11 attacks in the U.S.), this Solheim Cup was brought forward a year from 2004. This rescheduling meant future Solheim Cups would be played in odd numbered years and Ryder Cups in even numbered years.

Note: in one of the most unsporting but "letter of the law-invoking" incidents in Solheim Cup history, USA captain Bradley demanded Sörenstam replay a chip shot, which Sörenstam had just holed from off the green. The American fourball team of Kelly Robbins and Pat Hurst claimed that Robbins faced a longer putt than Sörenstam's chip, and demanded Sörenstam replay her chip as a penalty for playing out of turn. Another example where "rules" were invoked taking precedence over the spirit of the game.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.

Prince's Golf Club, Kent (UK)

Here at Prince’s Golf Club you'll find 27 excellent holes of links golf. Just over the fence and sharing similar terrain is Royal St George’s; but Prince’s is far from overshadowed by its venerable neighbour. The three nine-hole loops at Prince's, laid out over gently undulating terrain, are sure to bring a smile of satisfaction to all lovers of links golf.
