Lexi Thompson’s U.S. Solheim Cup standings shift following AIG Women’s Open

Before Lilia Vu captured her second major title of the year Sunday at the AIG Women’s Open, she had already locked up her spot on this year’s U.S. Solheim Cup team alongside Nelly Korda and Allisen Corpuz.

Vu’s win at Walton Heath did bump her to No. 1 in U.S. points, ahead of Korda, Corpuz and Nos. 4-7, Megan Khang, Jennifer Kupcho, Danielle Kang and Lexi Thompson. Those four players would earn automatic bids if qualifying ended today.

 

 

Qualification officially ends Aug. 28 with the top seven players in points, the top two Americans in the Rolex Rankings not otherwise exempt (currently that would be Rose Zhang and Andrea Lee) and three captain’s picks comprising U.S. captain Stacy Lewis’ 12-player squad.

The final Women’s Open leaderboard featured five Americans in the top 10 – Vu, Corpuz (T-6), Ally Ewing (T-6), Angel Yin (T-6) and Lee (T-9).
