ORLANDO, Fla. » Juli Inkster completed her Solheim Cup team by adding Brittany Lang and Paula Creamer as captain’s picks Monday night.
Creamer has one LPGA Tour victory in the past five years, but she has played on every Solheim Cup team dating to her rookie season in 2005 and has a 12-6-5 overall record. Lang will be playing in her fourth Solheim Cup.
Stacy Lewis, Lexi Thompson, Cristie Kerr, Michelle Wie, Brittany Lincicome, Morgan Pressel, Angela Stanford and Gerina Piller qualified on points. Alison Lee and Lizette Salas qualified through the world ranking.
"They add a lot to the team, not just as far as golf, but chemistry and experience," Inkster said. "They are very competitive players. Paula has been in a little bit of a funk, but I expect her to be out of it and ready to go. B Lang has been playing really good. I’m looking forward to it and I think the team is really stoked to get over there and turn the tide a little bit."
Europe won on U.S. soil for the first time in 2013 at Colorado Golf Club and has won the past two times. The Americans still have an 8-5 lead in the series.
The matches will be Sept. 18-20 at the St. Leon-Rot Golf Club in Germany.
