Solheim Cup: Bronte Law savours Europe’s victory at Gleneagles

Away from holing the winning putt at the Solheim Cup, bronte Law was only a few seconds and she stated it had become the experience of a life in the final stages at Gleneagles.
The 24-year-old Englishwoman shut her out 2&1 victory over Ally McDonald in the 17th hole moments before Suzann Pettersen wrapped up a 14.5-13.5 triumph for Europe over the USA with the last putt of this competition about the 18th.
“Watching Suzann around 18, I could hear the audience cheer before the putt went in. So I actually reacted before she even made it on the TV,” said Law.
“So it’s a good job it went because I was already celebrating. But just amazing. I’ve never experienced anything like this in my life and I really don’t know if I ever will.
“It’s simply the best feeling in the world. I really like being part of a group. This is exactly what with this game and I play with for.
“I’m not a greedy person. I don’t do it for myself. To be in a position to do it for others and also for Beany (Catriona Matthew)in our home, it’s really outstanding.”
Law also paid tribute and admitted they’d helped her fight back after she was one down to McDonald for four holes in the 10th to the 13th.
“The home support was phenomenal, honestly,” she said. “That is nothing I’ve ever experienced in my entire life. They’ve only been phenomenal and Everybody came out and they are honestly the 13th member of the group. Today, and they have been crying all day. And that makes a enormous difference.
“When it is possible to hear them really rooting for you personally and being loudly – and that’s exactly why you play this game. Plus it just gives you the pep in your step and just keeps you going. And of course it was not all easy sailing today, I played with with some golf when things fail, but I made some errors.
“And when I made those mistakes I just really listened to this crowd; they have been cheering me all the way around. And also to be able to do it in the front of my loved ones and a lot of friends is something quite special.”
Carlota Ciganda led Europe off at the singles and had a match with Danielle Kang before sealing a 1 up victory with a birdie.
“I was clearly very happy to assist the staff,” stated that the 29-year-old Spaniard. “For me personally, it’s not about meit’s the team. I prefer to lose my stage but the team. I believe that it was really important to get that blue line on the board.
“I battled hard. I wasn’t familiar out there playing against Danielle, but I performed my best. I won both the 2 holes from the last three. So really happy to win that point to the European team.”
Georgia Hall and Celine Boutier won all three of the matches over the two days and they ended with a perfect record after winning their singles games 1 & 2, the beating Lexi Thompson and the latter overcoming Annie Park.
“Pretty unique. Four out of four. I had a wonderful partner in Celine, and I was happy that I played very good now to get my singles win,” explained Hall.
Frenchwoman Boutier included:”It’s pretty unbelievable. I’m so pleased to be able to bring another stage to the group and enthusiastic about the round today. When you play for something bigger than yourself, it is something very unique and very hard to describe.”
