Next week, the Ryder Cup takes center stage, but this week it's the female professionals who will be making the most noise at the Solheim Cup. Europe won two years ago in the last meeting, 14 1/2-11 1/2, in the rain at Loch Lomond in Scotland. It was Europe's second victory in six matches, but the U.S. is 3-0 when hosting the event, and these matches are being played at Interlachen Country Club in Edina, Minn.

Hey, so some Europeans got mad. Dottie Pepper said before this year's Solheim Cup, the women's golf version of the Ryder Cup, that European Solheim players "would be bagging groceries" if it weren't for the LPGA. In other words, and maybe some other words would have been better, European golfers are darn lucky that there is an LPGA Tour that offers more prize money than any other alternative. Yikes. One year for the Solheim, Pepper dyed her hair red.
