Carin Koch to Captain Europe in 2015 Solheim Cup...




Sweden's Carin Koch has been appointed as European captain for the 2015 Solheim Cup in Germany, forming a dream ticket with Annika Sörenstam.

The Ladies European Tour announced that Carin Koch, assisted by Annika Sörenstam, would lead the European team as they bid for a third successive victory over the USA at the Leon-Rot course, south of Heidelberg, from September 18-20 next year.

The Solheim Cup is a biennial women's team golf competition which mirrors the men's Ryder Cup and Sweden has played a big part in the success enjoyed by the European team.
Carin Koch, who steps up from the vice-captain role she enjoyed in the record 18-10 victory over the USA in Colorado last year, played in four successive Solheim Cups from 2000 - 2005. She has a record of 10 wins, three defeats and three halved matches from those four appearances in the Solheim Cup and her proudest moment came when she sank the match-clinching putt at Scotland's Loch Lomond course in 2000.

The 43-year-old named fellow Swede and one of female golf's greatest players, Annika Sörenstam, as one of her vice-captains.

Koch said: "I am extremely delighted and honored to captain the 2015 Solheim Cup team. Being vice-captain to Lotta (Liselotte Neumann) in 2013 I once again experienced the thrill of the Solheim Cup matches, which are unlike any other tournament in professional golf.
"I cannot wait to stand with the team on the first tee next September to start our quest for the hat-trick of wins against the US team.

"I look forward to working with the German team at Golf Club St Leon-Rot for the next year and a half to put on the best Solheim Cup ever," she said to news agency AFP.
Last month Juli Inkster, a nine-time Solheim Cup player, was confirmed as the United States captain for 2015.

The Ladies European Tour chief executive Ivan Khodabakhsh said: "We are delighted that Carin has accepted the invitation to lead the European Solheim Cup team as she is a fantastic representative of European golf and her passion and experience of the event will transfer to her being an excellent and inspiring captain."
