Spain’s  Carlota Ciganda  stuck her  Pro V1x golf ball to two feet on the par-3 17th  Sunday at Finca Cortesin, setting up the birdie that clinched her singles victory and the Solheim Cup for Team Europe. 

Ciganda’s point was the sixth and final point of the day for Europe, bringing their total to 14 – enough to retain the cup. 

Titleist golf ball players secured all six European points on Sunday with  Leona Maguire  (Pro V1),  Anna Nordqvist  (Pro V1),  Caroline Hedwall  (Pro V1),  Maja Stark  (Pro V1) and Ciganda all winning their matches outright.  Georgia Hall  (Pro V1x) and  Gemma Drybrugh (Pro V1x) each secured half points. 

All square after the 15th, Ciganda made consecutive birdies on 16 and 17 to win her match, 2 up. No one earned more points over the three days than Ciganda, who went a perfect 4-0-0 on home soil. 

“I'm very happy to win the four points in Spain in front of the home crowd. … I think there is nothing like this,” Ciganda said. “To play in Spain in front of your home crowd on Spanish soil, and to have my name being chanted, it's really amazing, very special and just something that I won't forget.

Titleist Brand ambassador Emily Kristine Pedersen aced the par-3 12th hole during Friday’s fourball matches for just the second hole-in-one in Solheim Cup history.  

Faced with a 178-yard shot from an elevated tee, Pedersen pulled her NEW T100 7-iron and aimed for the left side of the green. Her Pro V1 landed just off the edge of the putting surface, taking a soft hop before rolling down the slope and into the cup.
