Everyone suddenly cares about the Solheim Cup, for nefarious reasons

One in the eye for Team USA.

Brittany Lincicome and Alison Lee were in tears, this morning, after they lost their fourball to their European opponents in one of the Solheim Cup's most controversial moments.

Suzann Pettersen and Charley Hull of Team Europe were all square with two holes to play when Lee missed a birdie putt.

The American thought the hole had been halved and scooped up her ball, which lay 16 inches from the hole.

However, the Europeans had not conceded the putt.

Confusion reigned for a few minutes until the hole was eventually awarded to Europe. They went 1-Up and closed the match out on the next hole, to give Europe a 10-6 lead going into this afternoon's singles.
