The final day of matches started and ended with bad news for the Americans, who lost the Solheim Cup to Europe 15-13.
England's Laura Davies set a new career points record at the Solheim Cup, while a late rally by the Americans has evened the score going into Sunday.
Once behind in all four four-ball matches, the U.S. rallied behind Paula Creamer and Morgan Pressel. Still, Day 1 goes to Europe 4.5-3.5.
The English star has played in every Solheim Cup and has plenty of memories -- gratifying, disappointing and amusing -- to share.
The U.S. Solheim Cup team comes to suburban Chicago as a mixed blend. With the likes of 19-year-old Michelle Wie and 49-year-old Juli Inkster, the Americans have both youthful exuberance and veteran experience on their side.
