A day after standing her ground and insisting she would do the same thing again in the Solheim Cup controversy in one of the remaining four-ball matches on Sunday morning — a call that many deemed as unsportsmanlike — Suzann Pettersen posted a heartfelt apology to her Instagram.

Fueled by a controversial call — which many deemed unsportsmanlike — in one of the remaining four-ball matches Sunday morning, Team USA won nine of the 12 singles matches and overcame the largest deficit (four points) in Solheim Cup history and defeated Team Europe 14.5-13.5 at St. Leon-Rot Golf Club in Germany.

Let’s first take a look at the drama that occurred on the 17th hole in the four-ball match between Suzann Pettersen and Charley Hull vs. Alison Lee and Brittany Lincicome. The match was all square with two holes to play. Lee stepped up to a 12-footer for birdie to win the hole and just barely missed. She picked up the ball from a foot and a half, thinking she had heard it was conceded.

Round one of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship at Westchester Country Club is in the books, and the afternoon wave certainly lit up the golf course, with Jenny Shin posting an impressive bogey-free seven-under 66 to take the lead.

“I started the round feeling a little uncertain,” said Shin. “I didn’t know how I was going to play, I really didn’t know. I talked to my psychologist last night about how I was freaking out for this round, so I tried to play as comfortable as I can, just like any other tournament. I tried not to think of it as a major and it turned out great. I had a couple bogey-free rounds last week, so I think I’m on a good run here.”

Welcome to a major week on the LPGA! — the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, formerly known as the LPGA Championship, is taking place at Westchester Country Club.

Last May, the LPGA, KPMG and the PGA of America announced they were collaborating to create a multi-faceted program focused on the development, advancement, and empowerment of women on and off the golf course. The event was given a new identity — and not per se replacing the LPGA Championship, rather “elevating” it.

Hull to stick to her roots

17-year-old Charley Hull has decided to pass on the second stage of LPGA Q-school second stage Oct. 8-11 in Venice, Florida. Instead, the English golfer plans to seek a different route to securing LPGA playing privileges through sponsor invites and other qualifying avenues, according to GolfChannel.com’s Randall Mell

Welcome back to #WUPHangouts! If you haven’t seen one before, it’s a live video chat with a guest or sometimes it’s just me, talking about all the latest topics in the golf world (or whatever I feel like). You can watch it in real time or afterwards on YouTube. At the end, I usually take questions that you can ask via Twitter and I/we answer as many as possible.

I was joined by Ryan Ballengee of the Golf News Net and we had a lively discussion on the thrashing the Americans took from the Europeans in the Solheim Cup, Patrick Reed beating Jordan Spieth in a playoff at the Wyndham Championship, the Presidents Cup and Fred Couples’ potential captain’s picks, and finally, the FedExCup Playoffs, which starts with this week at The Barclays at Liberty National — where it was held in 2009 and wasn’t received well by the pros, but apparently many changes have been made in the last four years, so we’ll hear their reviews soon.

Enjoy!

Oh, I haven’t ironed out the details yet, but I’ll start a “mailbag” of some sort in the upcoming weeks, where I’ll answer some of your questions via the Hangouts and/or in written form in a post. Because I do get some interesting emails… Stay tuned!

I think Carlota Ciganda is pumped up!

I think Carlota Ciganda is excited…

Heading into Sunday singles with a five-point deficit, the U.S. team needed nothing short of a miracle to take back the Solheim Cup, but Europe never gave them much of a chance to make a run.

Until Sunday at Colorado Golf Club, the Europeans had never won the Solheim Cup on foreign soil. And they didn’t just win, they clobbered the Americans, with the finally tally: Europe 18, U.S. 10.

The Spaniards FTW!

For the second day in row, the Solheim Cup was filled with drama and controversy, not to mention painful — and embarrassing — rulings that unnecessarily lasted nearly 30 minutes (maybe longer, but I fell asleep around the 22nd minute) over a drop from a hazard.
