Davies thrilled with shape of European team

Laura Davies believes that Europe has a great chance of getting The Solheim Cup back from America this September.

Laura Davies believes that Europe's Solheim Cup team has its best chance in years of regaining the trophy from the USA at Killeen Castle in Ireland.

Speaking at a press conference in Austria, the 11-time Cup player said: "I think now with this team we can bring back the Cup. It's been a long time and I think we now have the 12 players assembled who can do it. I think for the first time in a long while we have  got a strong team of ball hitters and the Americans aren't playing as well as they normally do."

Davies will make her 12th appearance as a player in the event when it gets under way from September 23-25.

Speaking about her experience of being the only competitor from either team to have played in every match since 1990, she added: "It just means I've been around a long time. It just shows that when you don't go crazy with too much practise you can last a long time and who knows, maybe I'll play in 13 or 14 of them."
