The 2021 European Junior Solheim Cup Team has been finalised.
The 2021 PING Junior Solheim Cup will take place on 1 and 2 September at Sylvania Country Club in Toledo, Ohio will see Team Europe face the United States in the 11th edition of the competition.
“We have now selected all the players." Said eight-time Solheim Cup player, and junior team captain, Annika Sörenstam. "We have a young and talented team from eight different European countries and I look forward to being their Captain. The PING Junior Solheim Cup is such a fun event, and we look forward to competing against Team USA with Captain Renee Powell and her players in Toledo.”
Former LET member Nora Angehrn, who is coach for the Swiss Girls National Golf Team, will be the Vice-Captain to the European team.
The team features 2020 European Ladies' Amateur Champion, Paula Schulz-Hanssen and 2021 European Young Masters winner, Helen Briem. Former Junior Vagliano Trophy players, Amalie Leth-Nissen and Francesca Fiorellini will also look to give team Europe its first victory in the match since 2007.
The PING Junior Solheim Cup is a biennial contest which was inaugurated in 2002 and is designed to give golfers from both sides of the Atlantic the opportunity to gain international match play experience whilst at the same time, meeting and sharing experiences with the professional players in the Solheim Cup.
Many stars of Team Europe and Team USA featured in the PING Junior Solheim Cup before excelling in the Solheim Cup. Carlota Ciganda, Azahara Muñoz and Caroline Masson triumphed as amateurs before lifting the Solheim Cup crystal trophy, while 10 members of the victorious 12-woman European side at Gleneagles in 2019 had previously played on a PING Junior Solheim Cup team.
