The US Solheim Cup team for next month’s match in Spain is complete.

Captain Stacy Lewis has selected Ally Ewing, Cheyenne Knight and Angel Yin as her three picks for the clash with Suzann Pettersen’s Europe at Finca Cortesin from September 22-24.

They join the nine automatic qualifiers for the US team who were named following the completion of play at the CPKC Women’s Open.

Lilia Vu, Nelly Korda, Allisen Corpuz, Megan Khang, Jennifer Kupcho, Danielle Kang and Andrea Lee qualified via the U.S. Solheim Cup team standings, while Lexi Thompson and Rose Zhang qualified courtesy of the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings.

Thompson will represent the United States for the sixth time and Kang for the fourth time, with Ewing, Khang, Korda and Yin appearing on their third teams.

Kupcho will wear the ‘Stars and Stripes’ for the second time, while Corpuz, Knight, Lee, Vu and Zhang will all be rookies.

“These final days were definitely some of the hardest ones of my career, but I’m so proud to have Ally, Cheyenne and Angel on the 2023 US Solheim Cup team,” said Lewis.

“These three women earned their spots on this team, putting themselves into contention both with their play on the course and their teamwork off the course.

“Over the last year and a half, I’ve got to know all the US players incredibly well and I’m honoured to be their captain. We are going to have an incredible week at Finca Cortesin.”

Europe, bidding to win the Solheim Cup for the third straight time, finalised its line-up last week.

Captain Pettersen added Madelene Sagstrom, Caroline Hedwall, Emily Pedersen and Gemma Dryburgh to a side that already comprised Celine Boutier, Maja Stark, Charley Hull, Leona Maguire and Georgia Hall, as well as Linn Grant Carlota Ciganda and Anna Nordqvist.
