Solheim Cup 2017: Catriona Matthew inspires Europe to strong start in the foursomes

Assistant captain Matthew was only brought into the side to replace the injured Suzann Pettersen on Thursday, but took to the task well alongside France’s Karine Icher in the foursomes.

The Scot, 47, was playing the fourth match at Des Moines Golf and Country Club and the European pair won on the last hole against Stacy Lewis and Gerina Piller.

Their victory, on a scrappy morning of play in West Des Moines, handed Europe a lead of 2 1/2 to 1 1/2 heading into the afternoon four-balls as they seek to win back the trophy lost in Germany in 2015.
