Anna Nordqvist of Europe hits from a bunker during the morning foursomes on day one of the 2011 Solheim Cup at Killeen Castle Golf Club on September 23, 2011 in Dunshaughlin, County Meath, Ireland.

Many players in 2013 are aiming to play on their first Solheim Cup team, and it would be a dream come true for them to do so. On the United States side, Lexi Thompson and Katie Futcher currently sit in the 7th and 8th spots on the Solheim Points list, respectively, and Jessica Korda and Gerina Piller are within striking distance of making it into the event. Team Europe hopefuls include Pernilla Lindberg, LPGA rookie Caroline Masson, Beatriz Recari and Giulia Sergas. Players will have 18 LPGA Tour events in which they can earn points for this year’s event. For updated points standings for both teams, log on to www.solheimcup.com.
