t looks like Ca­tri­ona Matthew is go­ing to be given the chance to lead the Euro­pean Sol­heim Cup team again.

The Scot helped in­spire Europe to an in­cred­i­ble vic­tory over the United States at Gle­nea­gles last month.

The United States went into the bi­en­nial tus­sle as firm favourites and looked cer­tain to win un­til Europe claimed the fi­nal three matches to seal a dra­matic vic­tory.

The wild cel­e­bra­tions af­ter Suzann Pet­tersen holed the win­ning putt were un­doubt­edly one of the golf­ing high­lights of the year.

A press con­fer­ence has been ar­ranged for Gle­nea­gles on Novem­ber 14 to an­nounce the cap­tain for the 2021 match at the In­ver­ness Club in Ohio. It ap­pears highly likely Ca­tri­ona will get the nod to lead the team again and I think that is the right call.

Dame Laura Davies and Suzann Pett­tersen have al­ready given their back­ing to Ca­tri­ona and there is no doubt it would be a very pop­u­lar ap­point­ment.

Win­ning in Amer­ica will be tough but Ca­tri­ona will rel­ish the chal­lenge.
