How does the Solheim Cup work?

Europe captain Catriona Matthew signs autographs at Gleneagles
Europe captain Catriona Matthew was born in Edinburgh and says guiding the team to victory at Gleneagles in her home country would rank above her 2009 Women's British Open win

In fourball matches, teams of two play each other and the player that shoots the lowest score on each hole wins it for their team - if the scores are tied then the hole is halved.

Foursome matches also involve two-man teams. However, only one ball per team is in play with players taking alternate shots. Again, the lowest score wins the hole.

The 12 singles matches on Sunday also follow the matchplay format.
