Americans are patriotic by nature at their national championship, but there was more than just a major title available for the taking last week at Sebonack Golf Club. The Solheim Cup is only a month and a half away and double points were on the line for those who can finish in the top 20.

At the end of the day on Sunday, nine of the top 10 players on the U.S. Solheim Cup team points list finished in the top-20 at the U.S.  Paula Creamer and Angela Stanford shared top American honors after finishing in a tie for fourth and earned 54 points each. Creamer moves into second place on the points list and trails Stacy Lewis by 314 points. Lewis leads the pack with 810.5 points. Players have just three events left to earn points at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic, the Marathon Classic and the RICOH Women’s British Open.
