Solheim Cup: Mel Reid named European vice-captain by Suzann Pettersen



England’s Mel Reid has been named one of Suzann Pettersen’s four vice-captains for this year’s Solheim Cup.

Reid will join 2023 European vice-captains Anna Nordqvist, Dame Laura Davies and Caroline Martens in assisting Pettersen in September.

Europe won in 2019 and 2021 then retained in 2023 so will seek to keep the trophy for a historic fourth time.

“Everyone knows how much the Solheim Cup means to me and how much I love being part of it,” said Reid, 36.

“It brings out passion and shows the best of what golf has to offer,” she added.

Reid made her playing debut in the competition in 2011 and was a vice-captain in 2019.

Pettersen said she is “excited” to have the same team of vice-captains along with the addition of Reid.

“It was a very natural choice for me and the rest of the team to bring Mel in alongside us in a vice-captaincy role,” the Norwegian said.

“She has an immense passion and ‘head’ for the Solheim Cup”.

The Solheim Cup will take place from 10-15 September at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Virginia.
