Emily Kristine Pedersen makes second hole-in-one in Solheim Cup history

We just saw the second hole-in-one in Solheim Cup history!

 

Emily Kristine Pedersen made history on Friday as she struck just the second hole-in-one in Solheim Cup history.

Pedersen was playing alongside rookie Maja Stark in the afternoon fourballs, with the pair 1-down to Jennifer Kupcho and Allisen Corpuz.

All three of her playing partners found the green on the par-3 12th at Finca Cortesin, with Pedersen the last to play.

The Dane’s ace on the 12th levelled their match in the afternoon session, as they aimed to recover from a 4-0 whitewash in the Friday morning foursomes.

She played in the morning foursomes session alongside Charley Hull, but the pair were heavily beaten, losing 5&4 to Ally Ewing and Cheyenne Knight.

Pedersen is playing in the Solheim Cup for the third time in her career.

Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist is the only other golfer in history to have scored an ace in the Solheim Cup.

The Swede, who is also playing this week in Andalucia, made a hole-in-one exactly a decade ago at the Colorado Golf Club.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
