4 more places filled on European team for Solheim Cup

BERLIN (AP) Four more players have secured their places on Europe's team to face the United States in next month's Solheim Cup.

Anna Nordqvist of Sweden, Azahara Munoz of Spain, Sandra Gal of Germany and Carlota Ciganda of Spain earned spots on the 12-member team through their world rankings after the final qualification tournament, the Canadian Pacific Women's Open.

They join Suzann Pettersen of Norway, Gwladys Nocera of France and Charley Hull and Melissa Reid of England, who qualified from the Ladies European Tour points list.

Europe captain Carin Koch will complete her lineup Tuesday when she names her four wild cards for the tournament.

The Solheim Cup takes place Sept. 18-20 at the St. Leon-Rot Golf Club in Germany.

Europe is looking for a third consecutive victory in the event.
