Europe's automatic qualifiers confirmed

The eight automatic qualifiers for Team Europe were confirmed on Sunday night at the end of the ASI Ladies' Scottish Open.

Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist ensured she will play in her sixth Solheim Cup after taking the last Rolex World Rankings spot thanks for a tied 13th place finish at the Renaissance Club.

Nordvist was under pressure from Celine Boutier of France, but did enough to guarantee a spot on Catriona Matthew’s team.

Spain’s Carlota Ciganda topped the Ladies European Tour rankings list, followed by rookie Anne Van Dam and Swede Caroline Hedwall, while English duo Charley Hull and Georgia Hall, Spain’s Azahara Munoz and Germany’s Caroline Masson made it in via the world ranking.

Matthew will announce her four wildcard picks on Monday 12 August at Gleneagles. The press conference will be aired live on Sky Sports at 2pm, and you can stay tuned via our social media channels - Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
