History of the Solheim Cup Golf Competition
This will be the 18th edition of the Solheim Cup after the event was first held in 1990. As a biannual women’s golf event designed to occur on alternate years to the Ryder Cup, this contest has come to be one of the regular fixtures that fans look forward to.
The event will be played over three days, consisting of 28 matches in the form of eight foursomes, eight four-balls, and 12 singles matches. A point is awarded for each win, with 14 points being needed to defend the cup and 14.5 needed to reclaim it.
Traditionally, America have dominated, winning 10 of 17 events. However, Europe is on the comeback trail, with four of their seven wins coming in the last six editions.

2023 Golf Solheim Cup Winner Prediction
We’ve analyzed the women’s golf odds, and here are our best 2023 Solheim Cup betting tips ahead of the 18th edition kicking off this Friday.
Team USA to Win @ 2.10 (11/10)
The bookies are right, this one is going to be tight. Three of the last four Solheim Cups have been decided by two points or less, including the last two tournaments in a row. While Team USA have found themselves on the wrong side of the last two results, they haven’t been far off the pace at all.
This year, America have the brilliant Nelly Korda, who held the No. 1 ranking earlier this year and is in brilliant form. They also have Rose Zhang and Lilia Vu, both players with multiple recent LPGA successes, who present a mighty strong lineup for the USA. We expect their form, plus the depth of talent, to give them a slight edge over Europe, with America getting their 11th win in this year’s Solheim Cup.
Golf Ladies Solheim Cup 2023 Betting Tips
Nelly Korda Top USA Points Scorer @ 5.50 (9/2)
Speaking of Nelly Korda, she leads our Solheim Cup 2023 predictions for America’s top point scorer. The 25-year-old has bounced back impressively from a back injury earlier this year, making seven top-10 finishes on the LPGA Tour this season. She also holds the crucial advantage of experience, making her third Solheim Cup appearance. While some of the other contenders, such as Rose Zhang, have been playing great golf, we think that Korda will be able to play her natural game more freely now. That is simply her ordinary level of competition where she used to play for the latest years.
With a 5-2-1 record across all her Solheim Cups, we say Korda will be crucial in winning many of USA’s points. For an even more lucrative return, back her to be the tournament’s leading point scorer and edge out Europe’s Leona MacGuire at 8.50.
Team USA to Win by 15-13 @ 13.00 (12/1)
Those who are after a big juicy return, then our 2023 Solheim Cup ladies’ golf betting preview has just the bet for you. We know this year will be close, but our exact pick is that Team USA will be by 15-13. This has been the winning margin in two of the past six Solheim Cups, including 2021’s event, where Team Europe won 15-13. We’ve crunched the numbers, and if Korda, Zhang, and Vu do their part for America, the challengers should get across the line 15-13 this year as well. The return for such a pretty possible outcome looks juicy enough.
2023 Solheim Cup Golf Best Betting Picks
It’s that time of the year again, with the Solheim Cup 2023 taking place over the coming weekend in Spain. With the best 24 female golfers from America and Europe fighting it out on behalf of their respective regions, not only can we expect some high-quality women’s golf, but there’s great betting to be had as well.
We say Team USA will return to their winning ways and nab a result here, taking down Team Europe 15-13 in yet another tight event. Crucial to their efforts will be Nelly Korda, who we predict will be America’s top point scorer as she leads her nation to Solheim Cup glory.
