Raise your hand if you’ve heard of the following players: Tania Elosegui, Martina Eberl, Melissa Reid.
Didn’t think so.
If the European Solheim Cup team was named this week, they’d be on it. I’ve actually seen Reid play several times, and she was a talented amateur. She’s currently sixth on the LET point standings, one spot out of automatic qualification. Annika Sorenstam, however, is the one sitting in front of her and she’ll be eight months pregnant by that time. If Reid holds her spot, she’s in.
Names like those won’t strike fear in the hearts of American players since, like you, they probably haven’t a clue.
We’ve still got a ways to go before August, but the Americans are playing well. Rich Harvest Farms could be a romp.
