Team USA captain Stacy Lewis has selected Ally Ewing, Cheyenne Knight, and Angel Yin as her captain’s picks to complete her squad for the 2023 Solheim Cup.

The top two ranked golfers on the Women’s World Golf Rankings, Lilia Vu and Nelly Korda feature within the list of nine automatic qualifiers while LPGA Tour rookie Rose Zhang is also included within the squad.

“I am so excited to have these nine players on the team,” said Lewis.

“The last year has been exciting – and challenging – and to have these players locked in has me pumped for the week in Spain.

“Even the rookies aren’t true rookies in my eyes. Over the last two years they have proven to be great competitors and I have no doubt that they won’t be overwhelmed by the experience.”

Speaking on her selection, Zhang said: “It’s an honour to be on this team, for me to be with the best players in the world as well as be an athlete that represents her country

“I can’t wait to go to Spain and tee it up with these amazing girls, and at the same time represent the red, white and blue.”
