SUGAR GROVE, Ill. – History was made today at the Solheim Cup. Just not the sort of history one would have expected – the first day a Solheim Cup proceeded without Laura Davies.
The icon of women’s golf in Europe, Davies was on the team when the Solheim Cup debuted in 1990 and while she’s missed sessions before, never has she been sidelined for an entire day.
Yet, there was the 45-year-old Davies behind greens, at tee boxes, and riding in carts to cheer on her teammates. She didn’t play in either the morning four-ball or afternoon foursomes.
