Five-time USGA champion Juli Inkster has been tabbed by the LPGA Tour to serve as USA Solheim Cup team captain for a third consecutive time in the biennial competition. Inkster, who won three consecutive U.S. Women’s Amateur titles (1980-82) and the 1999 and 2002 U.S. Women’s Opens, guided the Americans to consecutive victories in Germany (2015) and Des Moines, Iowa (2017). She now looks to become the first captain with three victories when the Solheim Cup is contested Sept. 13-15, 2019 at Gleneagles in Scotland.
“Right now, we have a good thing going,” said Inkster, who currently serves as a golf analyst for Fox.
Before that competition, however, Inkster, 57, hopes to add to her USGA championship portfolio by winning the inaugural U.S. Senior Women’s Open this July at Chicago Golf Club. JoAnne Gunderson Carner has the most female USGA titles with eight.
