Solheim Cup: USA captain Juli Inkster admits slow-play concernsPCMAX

Team USA captain Juli Inkster confessed the pace of play was a problem on the day of the Solheim Cup.
Inkster’s side course Europe 4.5-3.5 after a long day in Gleneagles, together with three of those afternoon fourballs carrying well over five hours to be completed.
“Yes [it had been a problem ], it’s painfully slow out there,” said Inkster. “I know we’d maybe a few on the side which are perhaps a tiny bit slower, but they also have a few on their side, too, which are a little slow. So I don’t know, I really don’t know exactly what to do.
“You have a take a look at this golf course, it is tough. The wind is blowing off. The greens are firm. The ball is not going anyplace. It is cold. I mean, it is not like it is a pitch and putt. It’s a challenging golf course and shot counts. Every couple of counts.
“So it is going to take longer. That’s just the way it’s. I believed the way in which the golf has been played was phenomenal to its conditions. It’s hard. It’s hard golf.”
American Lizette Salas put on the clock in the opening fourball of the day and was provided a warning, but Inkster defended her player, who dropped 2 alongside Danielle Kang & 4 into Anne van Dam and Suzann Pettersen.
“I believe Lizette had a terrible time,” she explained. “But this has been not the only player that had a bad time out there. She understands she has to speed this up a bit. But I am not going to say anything”
The USA stared at a enormous overnight shortage at one point but Lexi Thompson and Jessica Korda along with Nelly Korda and Brittany Altomare snatched pliers with essential birdies at the 18th.
“No one really ever talks about the half stage. And I need to say those two half things at the conclusion were huge,” she said.
“So we start off hot and we have a little lukewarm in the center, but we ended hot. So I’m very delighted with the way because everybody played the day went. And we had some fantastic matches.
“We only have ta keep the Euros within our rear-view mirrorour front mirror, thus we are able to see them. You do not want to get too far down. It was looking as if we can be two-and-a-half points down.
“It’s not insurmountable, however, you retain gnawing a half a point and stage there plus it provides up. So to be a point down. You look at of the golf now and we’re just a stage down. So I am quite happy with where we’re at right now.”
Team Europe captain Catriona Matthew was not overly concerned about the speed of play and will leave it to sort out.
“Of course that nine this afternoon did get fairly dumb,” she explained. “I don’t know what triggered it. It’s difficult to tell when you are leaping around not following only 1 game.
“However, some of the players on both sides do require quite some time to hit a shot. Nevertheless, it’s the officers really. They’re the people who authorities the speed of play, so it is really up to them, I presume.
“The players are aware of the speed of play policies. I mean, nobody wants to see play that is slow. Obviously with the larger crowds it is harder at times, but it would be wonderful to be faster tomorrow”
Matthew was a little frustrated, however, her side’s lead wasn’t larger after Charley Hull and Bronte Law and Carlota Ciganda and Azahara Munoz both had to settle for halves as it ended 2-2 in the day.
“Our aim is to attempt and win every session,” she said. “But I believe you must take the positives and we are contributing. We are a stage up. That would be great if we are contributing at the end of every day.
“Therefore I believe obviously everyone’s somewhat disappointed by that, but Charley had a terrific putt in the last, just a small firm.
“Brittany holed up and made a wonderful birdie. It’s not like they dropped it with terrible play; the others birdied it. We are pleased with moving in using a one-point lead.”
