Match notes: The 2023 Solheim Cup opened with Team USA sweeping the morning foursomes, winning four out of four matches — something the Americans had never done before. ... Team Europe came back to go unbeaten in the afternoon fourballs, but with two matches tied, winning three of four available points. Leona Maguire's 18th-hole chip-in won her and partner Georgia Hall the match against Lexi Thompson/Lilia Vu, which was Europe's first point of the competition. ... During one of those Day 1 fourballs, Emily Kristine Pedersen made just the second-ever hole-in-one in the Solheim Cup.

The teams split the Day 2 morning foursomes sessions. But in the Day 2 afternoon fourballs, Europe won three of the four available points to square the match at 8-8. And after the two sides split the singles matches on Day 3, tied is how this Solheim Cup ended: 14 points apiece. As the defending champion, Team Europe retained possession of the Cup. This was the first Solheim Cup, played 17 times previously, to end in a 14-14 tie.
