In September 2011, Killeen Castle in County Meath, Ireland, became a battlefield as Europe met the United States in the 12th staging of The Solheim Cup. This is the Official Review of a tension-packed showdown, featuring comprehensive highlights from throughout three days of fierce competition. Alongside the essential action, the Official Review examines Europe's daring strategy, and recalls how the world class teams had to contend not only with each other and the stunning Killeen Castle course, but also the demanding weather. After three successive defeats, regaining The Solheim Cup would require all of Europe's steely determination and Captain Alison Nicholas worked tirelessly to instil belief in her team. With the score tied at 8-8, Europe would have to win the final day singles, something they had achieved only once in the last six tournaments. As the final day dawned, the golfers found themselves embroiled in an explosive, action-packed clash in torrential rain and thunderstorms. The question on everyone's lips was a simple one; would Nicholas's strategy of resting some of her key players pay off?
