We have reached Solheim Cup week!

On the latest episode of The Slam – in association with CallawayMatt Chivers and Matt Coles look ahead to the match between Europe and America at Finca Cortesin.

The team considered who would be the star performers on each side, with both Suzann Pettersen and Stacy Lewis having an abundance of experience and freshness at their disposal.

Who will Charley Hull be paired with in Spain? Will America’s Solheim Cup veteran Lexi Thompson be paired with the impressive Rose Zhang?

America have two major champions as rookies, Lilia Vu and Allisen Corpuz, but will they trump the youth of Linn Grant and Maja Stark? There are so many dynamics to consider.

The Matts also look back on the BMW PGA Championship which was superbly won by Ryan Fox, despite making a triple-bogey on the front nine at Wentworth.

With the entire European Ryder Cup side in the field, how pleased will Luke Donald be with his team’s performance?

Also, we congratulate Sahith Theegala on his first win on the PGA Tour at the Fortinet Championship after many heart-breaking near misses.
