Sorenstam played in the matches eight times from 1994 to 2007, helping Europe win in 2000 and 2003, and was an assistant captain in three events. The 45-year-old Swede won 72 times on the LPGA Tour and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2003. She's second in Solheim Cup history with 24 points, a point behind longtime teammate Laura Davies.
