With some big victories at this year's Solheim Cup, we take a look at some of the largest winning margins in history

The Swedish duo of Anna Nordqvist and Caroline Hedwall were on the end of a heavy defeat to Ally McDonald and Angel Yin on the opening day of the 2019 Solheim Cup.

Playing in their first match of the event, they failed to make a bogey for the opening 11 holes and this ultimately led to a 7&5 victory for the visitors.

Inevitably, being the curious lot that we are in the NCG office, this got us thinking about the largest winning margins in Solheim Cup history.

So here they are:
