Suzann Pettersen has been named captain of the 2024 European Solheim Cup side.
The 2024 Solheim Cup will be played at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Virginia, over 10-15 September.
The two-time major winner is already preparing to lead the top 12 European female golfers at the 2023 Solheim Cup.
That will be played at Finca Cortesín, in the heart of Spain's Costa del Sol, Andalucía. But she will continue in the role for a second term.
Pettersen is a 21-time tournament winner, earning major titles at the 2007 McDonald's LPGA Championship and the 2013 Evian Championship.
During her career she earned 23 top-10 finishes in major championships and was ranked as high as No.2 on the Rolex Women's World Golf Rankings.
In 2016, Pettersen represented Norway in the Olympic Games in Brazil, finishing 10th place.
Pettersen represented Europe on nine Solheim Cup teams, in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2019.
She famously holed the winning putt at Gleneagles in Scotland.
Pettersen made a dramatic comeback as a captain's pick after her maternity leave and she then retired from competitive play immediately after the match. As a player, she owns a 18-12-6 win-loss-tie record and has earned 21 points for the European team from 36 matches.
In 2017, she served as an assistant captain to Annika Sorenstam after withdrawing from the competition due to injury and she also worked in that role under Catriona Matthew during Europe’s second away victory at Inverness Club, Ohio, in 2021.
Stacy Lewis, the 2023 U.S. Solheim Cup Team captain, will also continue in her role and serve as the U.S. Team captain in 2024.
