Solheim Cup: Bronte Law savours Europe’s victory at Gleneagles

Bronte Law was only a few minutes from holing the winning putt in the Solheim Cup and she explained it had been the experience of a lifetime in the closing stages at Gleneagles.
The 24-year-old Englishwoman shut her out two &1 victory over Ally McDonald at the 17th hole moments before Suzann Pettersen wrapped up a 14.5-13.5 win for Europe within the USA with the final putt of this competition about the 18th.
“Watching Suzann on 18, I can hear the audience cheer until the putt went . I actually reacted before she even made it around the TV,” said Law.
“So it’s a fantastic job it went because I was already celebrating. But just wonderful. I’ve never seen anything like this in my entire life and I do not know whether I ever will again.
“It’s simply the best feeling on earth. I love being part of a group. This is exactly what with this game and I play for.
“I am not a selfish person. I really don’t do it . To be in a position to do it for others and also for Beany (Catriona Matthew)in our home, it’s really outstanding.”
Law confessed they had helped her struggle back after she was one down in the 10th to the 13th to McDonald for four holes and also paid tribute.
“The home support has been phenomenal, frankly,” she explained. “This is nothing I’ve ever experienced in my entire life. They’ve only been phenomenal and Everybody came out and they are really the team’s 13th member. Now, and they have been crying all day. And that creates a huge difference.
“When it is possible to hear them actually rooting for you and being loud – and that is exactly why you play this game. Plus it keeps you moving and just gives you that pep in your step. And of course it was not all easy sailing now, I played with some really good golf, if things fail, but I made a few errors.
“And when I made those mistakes I just actually listened to this audience; they have been cheering me all the way around. And also to be able to do it in front of my family and a lot of friends is something really special.”
Carlota Ciganda had a hard-fought match with Danielle Kang before sealing a 1 up victory with a birdie and led Europe off.
“I was obviously very happy to help the staff,” stated that the 29-year-old Spaniard. “For me, it is not about me; it’s the group. I prefer to lose my stage but the team to win. I believe it was very important to get that line on the plank.
“I fought hard. I performed with my best, although I wasn’t out there playing Danielle comfortable. I won the 2 holes out of the previous three. So very happy to win there for the European group.”
Celine Boutier and georgia Hall won all three of their games collectively within the two weeks that are opening and they finished with a perfect 4-0 record after winning their singles games 2&1, the prior beating Lexi Thompson along with the latter overcoming Annie Park.
“Pretty unique. Four out of four. I had a great companion in Celine, and I was glad that I played really good today to receive my singles triumph,” explained Hall.
Frenchwoman Boutier included:”It’s pretty incredible. I am so happy to have the ability to bring the next stage and enthusiastic about the round today. When you play for something bigger than yourself, it is something very special and very hard to describe.”
