Team Europe completed a remarkable comeback on Sunday at Finca Cortesin to reach the 14-point mark and retain the Solheim Cup title. The Europeans have now hoisted the Solheim Cup three years in a row.

The competition ended in a 14-14 draw for the first time in 18 editions, but since Europe hit 14 points first, Suzann Pettersen and her squad were declared the winners.

Spaniard Carlota Ciganda will have her name written in the history books after an incredible performance on Sunday and throughout the entire tournament in front of her home country’s crowd.

Ciganda defeated Nelly Korda 2&1 to secure the winning 14th point. Lexi Thompson defeated Emily Kristine Pedersen in the final match 2&1 to tie the tournament at 14-14, but it was merely a consolation.
