Relive the best of Europe’s Solheim Cup and Ryder Cup success in a special new documentary, ‘Europe! Europe!’, this month on Sky Sports Golf.

The new programme reflects on a thrilling fortnight on the continent back in September, where Europe retained the Ryder Cup and regained the Solheim Cup in two memorable performances.

Home favourite Carlota Ciganda played a starring role as Europe claimed a thrilling 14-14 draw with the United States at the Solheim Cup in Spain, the first in the biennial contest’s history.

Trailing 4-0 after the opening foursomes, Suzann Pettersen’s side rallied magnificently at Finca Cortesin and it fittingly fell to Spanish star Ciganda to ensure the trophy would remain in Europe with her fourth win from four matches.

Europe are now unbeaten in the last three editions of the biennial contest and will look to retain the trophy again when Pettersen does battle with Stacy Lewis again next September in Virginia.

A week later, Team Europe avenged a humiliating 19-9 Ryder Cup defeat from two years earlier with an impressive 16.5-11.5 victory over Zach Johnson’s side in Rome.

Captained superbly by Luke Donald, who had inherited the role when Henrik Stenson was sacked for joining LIV Golf, the home side made the ideal start with an unprecedented 4-0 whitewash in the opening foursomes and never loosened their grip.
