USA 13, Europe 7:

The 1994 Solheim Cup featured the first appearance in the competition by Annika Sorenstam. Sorenstam was a rookie on the LPGA and had not yet won on either the LPGA or LET, but Europe captain Mickey Walker gave her the call. Annika went 1-2-0, however, and Europe fell to the USA 13-7.

The Solheim Cup format in 1994 was 10-player teams with all 10 players per side in action each day: five foursomes matches on Day 1; five fourball matches on Day 2; 10 singles matches on Day 3.

Europe led after Day 1, 3-2, and the teams were level at 5-5 following the second session.

But the U.S. dominated singles play, winning eight of the 10 matches. Only Helen Alfredsson and Alison Nicholas claimed singles points for Europe.

Brandie Burton and Dottie Pepper led the U.S. side with 3-0-0 records; Trish Johnson and Pamela Wright went 0-3-0 on the European side.
