GLENEAGLES, Scotland (AP) Norway's Suzann Pettersen was given a Solheim Cup wild card Monday despite having played just two tournaments since November 2017.

Pettersen will make her ninth appearance in the Solheim Cup at Gleneagles next month. She was originally appointed one of European captain Catriona Matthew's vice-captains.

"I was honored to be a vice-captain but I would much rather play," the 38-year-old Pettersen said.
