Lang celebrates birthday at Solheim Cup

Saturday, August 22, 2009

SUGAR GROVE, Ill. – Brittany Lang didn’t realize how long the days would run at the Solheim Cup. The rookie is used to keeping to herself during tournament weeks, rarely going out to dinner with other players or leaving her hotel room, other than to hit the gym.

But she’s thoroughly enjoying her time at the Solheim Cup, particularly her 24th birthday celebration. The crowds sang to her on practically every hole.

“I’m having a blast,” Lang said. “I’m really enjoying being social.”

Lang shares a suite this week with Natalie Gulbis, Angela Stanford and Christina Kim. The Texan has roughly 30 friends and family members here this week. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
