"Even The Solheim Cup Has Had VAR Controversy" - Social Media Reacts To Solheim Cup Incident

The Solheim Cup is never short of controversy and, on the very first day, we saw an incident that sent the Twittersphere into a near meltdown.

With Korda's putt hanging on the lip for eagle, Madelene Sagstrom picked up the ball and passed it back to her.

In doing so she broke rule 13.3a (opens in new tab); therefore, team USA went on to win the hole and then the match by 1-up, with the rules decision proving the deciding factor.

Taking up the game when he was just seven years of age, Matt made it into his county squad just a year later and continues to play the game at a high standard, with a handicap of around 2-4. To date, his best round came in 2016, where he shot a six-under-par 66 having been seven-under through nine holes. He currently plays at Witney Lakes in Oxfordshire and his favourite player is Rory McIlroy, despite nearly being struck by his second shot at the 17th during the 2015 BMW PGA Championship.
