Pressel in tears after Solheim victory

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

SUGAR GROVE, Ill. – You knew Morgan Pressel couldn’t get through the interview without tears. Pressel’s 3-and-2 victory over Anna Nordqvist gave the Americans the 14th point they needed to retain the Solheim Cup.

“I’m still speechless,” said Pressel as she got choked up.

Bring out the tissues. Every person the Golf Channel interviewed down the stretch got emotional, including Beth Daniel, Alison Nicholas and Christina Kim.

Catriona Matthew, the stoic Scot who played superbly all week, was the first to keep it together.
