Match Notes: Within a one-minute span at the end of the singles session, Team Europe won two holes and, with them, the Solheim Cup. First, in a match on the 17th hole, Ally McDonald of Team USA missed a putt that gave Bronte Law the victory in their match. Then, seconds later on the 18th hole, Europe's Suzann Pettersen made a putt that gave her the victory over Marina Alex. Pettersen's putt was the last stroke of the tournament and gave Europe the one-point victory.

In the major international team tournaments (Solheim Cup, Ryder Cup, Presidents Cup), Pettersen was the first golfer since Syd Easterbrook in the 1933 Ryder Cup to win the cup for her side by sinking a putt on the final stroke of the match, on the last hole of the match, in the last match on the golf course.

The teams were never separated by more than one point at the end of any session, making it one of the most closely contested Solheim Cups yet. ... When Jessica Korda and Nelly Korda of Team USA partnered one another one Day 1, they became the first sisters ever to play as partners in a Solheim Cup. Each posted a 3-0-1 record. ... Team Europe's leaders were Georgia Hall and Carlota Cigando, who each went 4-0-0.
