Pressel vs. Pettersen: A mismatch

SUGAR GROVE, Ill. – When they decided on which holes Morgan Pressel would drive, the Americans might not have realized the matchup they were getting in the second match of the afternoon foursomes. But when she stepped to the first tee, Pressel was involved in as big a mismatch in Solheim Cup history.

In this corner, averaging 266.9 off the tee, from Sweden, Suzann Pettersen.

And in this corner, averaging 240.7 off the tee, from Florida, Morgan Pressel.

No surprise, Pettersen ripped it 50 yards further at the first hole, though Helen Alfredsson’s poor second shot enabled the American to at least halve the hole.
