The 2021 Solheim Cup is now in the books, but none of this year’s players have cracked the top five in all-time points for their respective squads (yet). Here are the all-time leading point-scorers for each side in Solheim Cup history.


Cristie Kerr (21 points)

Kerr is the greatest fourball player in Solheim Cup history, posting an 11-5-1 record in the format between 2002 and 2017, a major contributor to her 18-14-6 overall record.

Paula Creamer (19.5 points)

Creamer’s high point total stands out because of her sparkling win percentage, going 17-9-5 in seven cups between 2005 and 2017.

Juli Inkster (18.5 points)

Inkster captained the U.S. Solheim Cup teams three events in a row from 2015-2019. But before that she was a leader on nine teams as a player ranging from 1992 to 2011, earning 18.5 points in 34 matches — including a sparkling 6-1 singles record.

Meg Mallon (16.5 points)

Mallon played in eight Solheim Cups between 1992 and 2005, earning 16.5 points in 29 matches. Her 13-9-7 record is particularly notable because those seven ties are tied with Inkster for the all-time record.

Dottie Pepper (14 points)

The most impressive part of Pepper’s Solheim Cup record is that she earned those 14 points in just 20 matches, logging a record of 13-5-2 — including a 5-1 singles record.

Laura Davies (25 points)

Davies has played in an all-time record 12 Solheim Cups and has earned an all-time record 25 points in the process, going 22-18-6 between 1990 and 2011.

Annika Sorenstam (24 points)

Sorenstam unsurprisingly picked off Solheim Cup matches at an impressively high rate, going 22-11-4 — including an incredible 11-3-1 in foursomes.

Catriona Matthew (22 points)

Matthew, a Scottish golf legend, is 6-2-1 in singles and 18-11-8 overall in nine Solheim Cups between 1998 and 2017.

Suzann Pettersen (21 points)

The Norwegian etched herself in Solheim Cup lore with a dramatic winning putt at the 2019 Cup — and now returns as an assistant captain for Team Europe.

Sophie Gustafson (16 points)

Gustafson was a reliable presence on Solheim Cup teams from 1998 to 2011, going 13-12-6 — highlighted by a sparkling 7-1-4 fourball record.
