On September 24, Beijing time, at the beginning of the year, there were 34 matches on the LPGA Tour. Then the new crown epidemic broke out and the LPGA Tour was suspended for five months. Due to the cancellation and postponement of the event, there are only 17 races left this year.
This is why Solheim Cup captain Pat Hurst doesn't mind getting a few more wild cards when forming the US team next September.
"It must be more than two," Pat Hirst said. "I think four is good. I don't know if we can get it. Who knows?...Let's pray and see if we can get four. Wild card."
The U.S. team takes the top eight players through points, the other two are selected through the world rankings, and the last two are the captain's wild cards.
The European team has made adjustments, Catriona Matthew (Catriona Matthew) now has 6 wild cards instead of 4. 2 players come from the women's European Tour standings, 4 from the world rankings.
"We don't think there are so many players in the competition, and all the schedules are uncertain. I am very happy to do so and have more choices in handling next year's things." Katrina-Matthew said.
The Solheim Cup will be held at the Cape Northwestern Ohio Club from September 4th to 6th, three weeks before the Ryder Cup. The captain of the US team Steve Stricker has changed the selection method and changed to 6 wild cards this year, although the selection system has been updated after the game was postponed for one year.
