Spartan Hall of Famers Lead Team USA To Solheim Cup Victory

Aug. 21, 2017

San José State Athletics Hall of Famers Juli Inkster and Pat Hurst coached Team USA to a victory at the Solheim Cup Sunday afternoon as the United States retained the cup for two more years.

Team USA won 16.5-11.5 over Team Europe at the Des Moines Golf and Country Club in West Des Moines, Iowa.

Inkster became just the second captain to win two Solheim Cups, matching what Judy Rankin did in the 1990s. Hurst was also an assistant captain for the second consecutive Solheim Cup.

"The US team showed the energy and passion for the game that Juli has always had. She rubbed off on them. The team was really invested in winning, a direct reflection of Juli and Pat and their passion for the game," said Spartan head coach John Dormann.
