Emily Pedersen to play against USA caddie AND boyfriend in Solheim Cup singles

In an extraordinary set of circumstances, Team Europe's Emily Pedersen is set to play against Danielle Kang and her long-time boyfriend Olly Brett in the Solheim Cup singles.

Brett caddies for Kang, so there was always a chance that he would come up against his partner Pedersen in Ohio, but they have incredibly been drawn against each other in the Monday singles.

Pedersen and Charley Hull have formed a fruitful partnership so far this week. They have earned two points as a pair, including a 3&2 victory over Kang and Austin Ernst in the Sunday fourballs.

However, the American pair did manage to secure a 1 up victory in the Sunday foursomes against Georgia Hall and Madelene Sagstrom.
