Morgan Pressel has been named as an assistant captain for the United States’ Solheim Cup team in 2023 by Stacy Lewis. Pressel, a six-time member of Team USA and a major winner, will try to help the Americans reclaim the cup at Finca Cortesin in Spain next September.
“I knew I wanted somebody with a true enthusiasm for the Solheim Cup when I started thinking about assistant captains,” Lewis said. “Morgan was at the top of my priority list right away.” Her competitive spirit and passion for the Solheim Cup will be valuable assets to Team USA. I’ve known her as a competitor and a friend for a long time, and I’m excited to have her on board as we spend the next year putting up a fantastic team.”
In 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015, and 2019, Pressel, 33, was a member of winning Solheim Cup teams. With a 3-and-2 victory over Anna Nordqvist in 2009, she earned the winning point. Pressel has a record of 11–8–3 in the Solheim Cup.
