The 16th Solheim Cup will take place this weekend starting Friday at the Gleneagles PGA Centenary Course in Scotland. With a similar format to the Ryder Cup, 12 of the top professional women golfers from the United States and Europe will play the biennial three-day match-play event. Juli Inkster will captain the U.S. team for the third time against the first-time European captain Catriona Matthew.

There will be six Solheim rookies competing for the Americans, the most since the inaugural event was played in 1990 (when everyone was a rookie). In 1992 and 2002, the Americans had five rookies on each team and won both years.

The U.S. is currently on a winning streak, defeating Europe in 2017 at Des Moines (Iowa) Country Club (16½-11½) and in 2015 at Golf Club St. Leon-Rot, in Germany (14½-13½, the closest finish in Solheim Cup history).

The event includes morning four-ball and afternoon foursome sessions on Friday and Saturday (four matches in each session), and singles matches on Sunday (all 12 players competing). The team that wins 14½ points out of the 28 available wins the Cup. If there is a tie at 14-14, the U.S. retains the Cup after winning it most recently.

The U.S. holds a 10-5 edge over European in the history of the event.
