Both Anna Nordqvist & Matilda Castren won the matches during an unforgettable opening day of Team Europe

Anna Nordqvist, Matilda Castren and the Solheim Cup continued unbeaten to help Team Europe maintain their lead of three points on an unusual opening day in Ohio.

After defeating Austin Ernst and Danielle Kang in the morning, the Scandinavian couple cruised to victory in fourballs in afternoon over Lexi Thompson.

This win came after an unbeaten foursomes match for Team Europe. It briefly brought Catriona Matthew’s team to a 4.5-0.5 lead. However, Ally Ewing and Nelly Korda were able to score Team USA their first point in the contest.

Madelene Sagstrom picked up Nelly Korda's eagle putt before waiting the full ten seconds to see if it would fall into the hole, seeing Team USA awarded the hole in that fourball match
