I’m thrilled to be able to name my three Vice-Captains,” said Pettersen.
“I’m excited for what Caroline, Anna and Laura can bring to Team Europe as we
look to defend the Cup on Spanish soil in the Costa del Sol. With all three of
them by my side, I couldn’t ask for anything better and I’m certain that they
will be great for our team.”
Three-time Major champion Nordqvist is no stranger to the Solheim Cup having
played in the last seven editions of the tournament from 2009 to 2021, being on
the winning side four times and clinching 15.5 points for Team Europe during

While Davies brings a wealth of experience to Team Europe having made 12
appearances in the competition, as well as being a Vice-Captain at the 2019 and

Pettersen continued: “The Solheim Cup holds some of my best golfing memories and
to be able to share that with my lifelong friend Caroline will be something very
special. She goes the extra mile for her friends and family, and I cannot wait
have her alongside me and my other Vice-Captains.
“Laura is a global golfing legend. Her passion and knowledge for women’s golf
and particularly the Solheim Cup is something we share. I loved working her last
year in Toledo and I’m happy to have her in the team room once again.
“I have been fortunate to share many fairways and memories alongside Anna
throughout my career.
Having represented Team Europe on seven occasions, Anna is someone who knows the
hard work that goes into the Solheim Cup, and I can’t wait for her to be with
