“It was nice last weekend, it was the first time in a while I’ve been up there. I didn’t play my best but it was nice to be there and I’m just gaining a little bit of confidence every day so hopefully I continue that over the next couple of days. I didn’t get off to a good start. Hit a couple of poor iron shots and, to be honest, putted really poorly in the first five or six holes but then I started to play really well after that. On the front nine I played lovely, hit some good drives and good iron shots, didn’t quite make all the putts that I wanted to but it was nice to turn it around and obviously nice to finish with a birdie on the last. It makes a big difference shooting under instead of even level par or one over, so that’s certainly going to make lunch taste a little bit better.”

Solheim Cup organizers and BMW announced the creation of the BMW Celebrity Match during the week of the 2021 Solheim Cup, which will take place at Inverness Club from August 31 – September 6 in Toledo, Ohio. The celebrity match will be held on Thursday, September 2 at 2 p.m. at Inverness Club, with celebrities and players battling for the inaugural crown.

“We are excited to be able to bring the BMW Celebrity Match at the Solheim Cup to life during event week,” said Solheim Cup tournament director Becky Newell. “The match was designed with fans in mind as a way to elevate the experience for those attending the Solheim Cup, and we’re looking forward to watching these players try their hand at Inverness Club as a kickoff to one of women’s golf’s most distinguished team events.”

The celebrity match will have two teams teeing off No. 10 in a scramble format. Three-time U.S. Solheim Cup team captain and 31-time LPGA Tour winner, Juli Inkster, and six-time U.S. Team member and major champion Morgan Pressel are among the participants, as well as Radio Hall of Fame host and former NFL defensive lineman, Mike Golic. 

One of the teams will also be captained by none other than multi-Platinum selling and three-time GRAMMY Award-winning country artist, Darius Rucker. 

“The Solheim Cup is a prestigious event that I always enjoy watching as a fan of great golf,” said Rucker. “I’m honored to be on the same course as these talented players and can’t wait for some friendly competition in the celebrity match!”.
