The Solheim Cup tees off at Killeen Castle in Ireland on Friday with Europe’s ladies available at odds of 11/4 to regain the Cup with Unibet who are giving a £20 Free Bet to new customers whose first bet turns out to be a loser. Online bookmakers give free bets to new customers which can be placed on the Solheim Cup.  


The most prestigious international women’s golf trophy, the Solhiem Cup, has been the property of the United States team for six years after victory in the team matchplay tournament at Crooked Stick in 2005. The United States are hot favourites to come out best for the fourth successive occasion when the Solheim Cup makes its first appearance in Ireland, at Killeen Castle next weekend.

The USA team features Christie Kerr and Paula Creamer who are ranked among the world’s top ten lady golfers and with half of the 12-woman team in the top twenty, bookmakers have made the USA odds-on to win the Solheim Cup in Ireland – SkyBet standing out with its 4/7 odds.

Kerr and Creamer have yet to win a tournament this year, but Kerr has earned over $1,300,000 prize money thanks to 10 top-ten finishes in 16 tournaments on the Ladies tour and is available at 5/1 with Irish bookmaker Boylesports to finish top American at the Solheim Cup.

Creamer tied with 2007 Solheim Cup rookie Michelle Wie as top points scorers in Sugar Grove two years ago, Creamer is available at odds of 11/2 to be top American at SkyBet while Coral offers odds of 10/1 for the returning Wie to be star of the show for the Americans once again..

The European team is not lacking talented players; Suzann Pettersen won the Sybase Matchplay Championship in May followed by the Safeway Classic three weeks ago and is crrently third in this year's money list. The classy Norwegian is favourite to finish Europe’s top player at the Solheim Cup, available at odds of 7/2 with SkyBet.

Europe’s challenge is strengthened with some promising Solheim Cup debutantes; Germany’s Sandra Gal registered her first LPGA Tour win at this year’s Kia Classic and Sweden’s Caroline Hedwall is the hottest player on the Ladies European Tour at present with three wins since May.

Europe has won the Solheim Cup three times in 11 occasions the bi-ennial event has been played since it began in 1990. On each occasion Europe made the most of home advantage, last winning the Solheim Cup at Barseback Golf and Country Club in Malmo, Sweden in 2003.
