    In dominating fashion the U.S.A retained the Solheim Cup...16.5 to 11.5.

    LEADERBOARD | Solheim Cup

    The Euros controlled the morning session on Fri., but the American gals took over by sweeping the Fri afternoon session and never looked back.

    It's great that we won, but what did they really prove? They're better than the Euros I guess, but my point is, it's time to include the Koreans in the team golf format for women.

    At least the US Women can win something! But it proves (well it might) that in the LPGA US is more dominate, with a huge asterisk since I am sure there were plenty more deserving plays on the Euro squad that weren't picked.

    Now it's the Men's turn..

    I haven't looked in a long time, but I'm guessing there are 25 Koreans on the top 50 womens world golf ranking...maybe 15-18 Americans...I think Euro women have single digits in the top 50.

    Yeah, I was just kidding around. In reality the rest of the world beats the US women basically everytime

    I don't think the U.S. gals are strong enough for a President Cup style USA vs the world minus Europe...It would be competitive I think early on, but after a while once the Koreans get accustomed to team golf, I can see it getting lopsided in favor of the rest of the world.
