The singles at the Solheim Cup 2023 could hardly have been more exciting. Almost all duels were close, with the teams taking turns securing the points at the beginning before matches 5 and 6 were split. But even after that, neither the USA nor Europe were able to pull away and half of the following four matches went to both teams. So the score was 13:13 with two matches still open. Carlota Ciganda, the only Spaniard in the team, completed one of these at her home game.

And it was she who got the decisive point. In the duel with Nelly Korda, in which she had already scored 3 after eight holes, the tide seemed to be turning on the back nine. The American won three holes and went all square on 16. Here Ciganda, who kept encouraging the fans, showed her nerves. She took the lead back with a birdie and then attacked the pin on the par-3 one hole later with a precise tee shot. Korda missed the green on the left and the Spaniard had no trouble scoring 14 points for her team with a short putt.

Since Europe started as defending champions, the final tie was enough for a third win in a row. The outcome of the last match didn’t matter. The next Solheim Cup will be held next year. Then the tournament, which is played every two years, takes place at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville (Virginia), USA.
