US Comeback Wins Solheim Cup
ST. LEON-ROT, Germany (AP) Paula Creamer defeated Germany's Sandra Gal to complete a remarkable comeback as United States won the Solheim Cup with a 141/2-131/2 victory over Europe on Sunday.
Creamer made five birdies in 15 holes to win the final singles match 4 and 3 and give the U.S. its first title since 2009.
Europe led 10-6 going into the 12 singles but could only win three and draw another as the Americans - inspired by a controversial call in the fourballs - claimed 81/2 points to deny the Europeans a third straight title.
Caroline Masson of Germany missed the chance to retain the cup for Europe, before Gerina Piller made her more difficult 9-foot putt to win her match by one hole and keep American hopes alive.
The U.S. extended its series lead to 9-5.
