Solheim Cup Latest Evening Update

Damn you mother nature. First we had lightning then the light ran out. Just when it was all kicking off!!

Carlota Cigana applied the icing on the European Solheim cake with her incredible hole out on the 17th to put her and Melissa Reid level going down the last. Except the Americans (and fair play to them, it was darker than a black hole on its day off out there) decided they'd finish the last hole in the morning.

As play concluded, Europe led USA 4-2 on the first day in St Leon-Rot in Germany.

Two fourball matches will be completed on Saturday, with Europe leading in one and the other level. The morning foursomes finished 2-2 before defending champions Europe won the two completed afternoon fourballs.

Anna Nordqvist and Caroline Hedwall eased home 4&3, while Charley Hull picked up her second point as she and Gwladys Nocera triumphed 3&2.

Melissa Reid & Carlota Ciganda versus Lexi Thmpson & Cristie Kerr is all square with one hole to play.

Sandra Gal & Catriona Matthew are 1 up with 3 holes to play against Gernina Piller and Lizette Salas.
