Now that we've introduced you to our new Assistant Golf Pro, Jim, we wanted to give him the reins from time to time with our blog.
Here's his first Guest Blog Post, recapping this past weekend's Solheim Cup, a Europe vs. USA-style match, which parallels our upcoming Can-Am Cup!
In dramatic fashion this past weekend, Team USA defeated Team Europe by a score of 16 1/2 -11 1/2 at the Des Moines Golf and Country Club in West Des Moines, IA to retain the Solheim Cup. This marks the 2nd consecutive victory for captain Juli Inkster who also led Team USA to victory in 2015 at the biennial matches held in Germany.
