Morgan Pressel USA's MVP

Playing in her third Solheim Cup, it was Morgan Pressel’s time to shine for the U.S. Team. Pressel kicked off this year’s Solheim Cup teamed with longtime friend Paula Creamer. The duo took command of their match early against Laura Davies and Melissa Reid and never looked back to record a 1 up victory. On day two, Pressel was sent out early with Solheim Cup rookie Ryann O’Toole during the morning Foursomes. The duo’s strides were in sink throughout their rounds as they handed Karen Stupples and Christel Boeljon a 3&2 defeat. Pressel kept the momentum going during Saturday afternoon’s four-ball pairing with Cristie Kerr to take down Suzann Pettersen and Caroline Hedwall with a 1 up victory. This week, Pressel served as the only American to go undefeated with a record of 4-0-0 to earn a total of four points for the U.S. Team. The two-time LPGA Tour winner now holds an overall Solheim Cup record of 7-2-2. Sophie Gustafson also went undefeated as the European ended this week’s Solheim Cup with a matching 4-0-0 record.

THE MODERATOR: Morgan, finally to you. On a very long golf course, you were able to be quite successful. Four points for the U.S. Team. Just talk about the week from the players' perspective?

MORGAN PRESSEL: Yeah, I mean, it was obviously a very disappointing finish, but I do feel like I played well. But Rosie put me out there four times, and I took care of each one of those points, and that was my job.

Everybody had a job this week to go out and get as many points as they could, and I'm definitely very happy with the way I played on this course. I love the tournament. I love the passion and playing for my country, and you know, I ‑‑ I'm done.

ROSIE JONES: Nobody has more heart and wants it more than Morgan. I think just to jump in there, she was ‑‑ she was upset when I didn't play her that first match in foursomes, and we had some long discussions with my assistants on that.
