Solheim Cup History
- 1975: PING’s dedication to supporting the women’s game stems from the mid-1970s, when founder, Karsten Solheim and his wife Louise began sponsoring LPGA events. The first was the Karsten-PING open, held in Phoenix in 1975.
- 1990: The birth of the Solheim Cup. PING has since enjoyed a long-standing and strong relationship with the biennial contest, having played an important part in the competition’s inception in 1990, with the tournament subsequently being named after Karsten and Louise Solheim, PING’s founders.
- 2002: Inaugurated in 2002, the PING Junior Solheim Cup is a version of The Solheim Cup for the stars of tomorrow (amateurs aged 18 and under) and follows a similar format to the senior event, featuring the top 12 European junior amateurs versus their American counterparts at the beginning of the Solheim Cup week.
“Karsten loved ladies’ golf. He felt the lady professionals did not get as much recognition as their male counterparts and that is why he sponsored various LPGA events dating back to 1975."
“When the opportunity to sponsor a Ryder Cup-like ladies’ event was presented to my parents, they embraced the idea wholeheartedly. Karsten thought it would be a wonderful arena for the ladies from Europe and the USA to be recognised for their golf skills and talents.”
