The 16th edition of the Solheim Cup between Europe and the United States begins on Friday, 13 September at Gleneagles, Scotland.

The event follows the same format as the Ryder Cup, with fourball and foursomes matches on the first two days followed by 12 singles on Sunday.

Team USA have won 10 of the previous 15 contests and are attempting to claim a third on the trot after winning four years ago in Germany then defending the title on home soil in Iowa in 2017.

This is the third time the Solheim Cup has been staged in Scotland, with Europe winning on both previous occasions.

Play is scheduled to start at 08:10 BST on Friday and here’s what you need to know about the teams, the history and the course.
