Beatriz Recari of Spain poses with the winner's trophy after her -9 under par, 2-hole playoff victory over I.K. Kim of South Korea during the Final Round of the LPGA 2013 Kia Classic at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in Carlsbad, California.

While the American Standings stayed the same this week, a victory by Spain's Beatriz Recari at the Kia Classic shook up the European points list this week. Recari's jump in the Rolex Rankings pulled her into the 7 spot on the team. Fellow Spaniard Carlota Ciganda is currently the points leader on the European side, followed by Suzann Pettersen, who won an LET event a few weeks ago, LPGA Rookie Caroline Masson, and Pernilla Lindberg. In this video, Anna Nordqvist, a two-time Solheim team member and one-time winner, talks about the build up to the Solheim Cup every other year.
