USA 16, Europe 12:

Team USA pulled out a closely contested victory over Team Europe at the 2007 Solheim Cup by relying on the singles dominance it had shown in several previous Solheim Cups, too.

After two days of pairs match play, Europe held a slim lead of 8.5 to 7.5 points. But in the 12 singles matches on Day 3, the USA earned 8.5 of the 12 points at stake.

The singles session started OK for Europe, with Catriona Matthew earning a point in the lead-off match. But the U.S. did not give away any points in any of the next six matches. That stretch included a 2-and-1 victory by Solheim Cup rookie Morgan Pressel over Annika sorenstam.

Sorenstam went 2-2-1 in what turned out to be her final Solheim Cup appearance as a player. Matthew led the Europeans with a 3-1-0 record, while Paula Creamer topped the American side with 3.5 points earned.
