American captain Rosie Jones has put her faith in big hitters Cristie Kerr and Michelle Wie in the opening series of foursomes as the U.S. begin their title defense of the Solheim Cup on Friday against Europe at Killeen Castle in Ireland.
Jones picked world number three Kerr and Wie, unbeaten on her debut two years ago, as her top pairing and they face the Swedish duo of Maria Hjorth and Anna Nordqvist.
“The course is playing very long after a week of rain,” said Jones. “Michelle and Cristie are both great leaders. They’ve played together a lot and had success. I want them to get out fast and put up a point.”
Cute interviews with Michelle Wie, Christina Kim, and Angela Stanford. They answered questions from the media before the 2011 Solheim Cup.
