Scotland is shaping up for the 2019 Solheim Cup as the stars of the women’s game prepare to lock horns at the PGA Centenary Course at Gleneagles, starting today.

With four on-course grandstands, including a 3,000 seater amphitheatre around the first tree, the women’s equivalent to the Ryder Cup is expecting over 100,000 spectators through the gates this week as Europe look to wrestle the famous trophy back for the first time since their record-breaking win in 2013.

USA Captain, Julie Inkster’s side are chasing their third straight victory in the biennial event and go into the tournament as favourites, but there’s not a lot to choose between the two sides despite recent results at the event.

Team Europe will be captained by Scotland’s own, Catriona Matthew which is sure to generate a raucous atmosphere come Friday’s opening session.

Just like in the men’s competition, a Spanish influence is ever-present in the European locker room and Carlota Ciganda ensures this year will be no different. Europe’s top-ranked contestant has grabbed seven top-10 finishes this term, including two at the Majors, and will be looked upon for leadership throughout the week.

Every shot during competition days will air on SkySports Golf starting with the foursomes at 8.10am this morning.

There might be no Irish players in the mix this year but we’ll be getting right behind Team Europe regardless as they look to turn the tide in the showpiece event on the women’s golf calendar.

Team Europe:

Carlota Ciganda (ESP)

Anne van Dam (NED)

Caroline Hedwall (SWE)

Charley Hull (Eng)

Georgia Hall (Eng)

Azahara Munoz (ESP)

Caroline Masson (Ger)

Anna Nordqvist (SWE)

Bronte Law (Eng)

Celine Boutier (Fra)

Jodi Ewart Shadoff (ENG)

Suzann Pettersen (NOR)
