Rose Zhang, first eagle on hole 1

Hole 1 being played in this Solheim Cup was hole 4 of Cabell B. Robinson’s original design, but it was decided to make the change both for the spectacularism of the hole and for the excellent natural amphitheater of the tee, perfect to accommodate the grandstand that is giving so much play in the tournament.

Hole 1, a par 4 of 270 meters, with the green defended by water, promised spectacle and excitement, as it is being, but it was also expected more courage from some players. In the end, strategy rules and some have preferred to play to the fairway and secure, others have tried and have gone to the water, and the first and only one so far who has managed to do it in two strokes, that is, to score an eagle on her card, has been Rose Zhang in the third Fourball match of the afternoon. Of course, she won the hole, of course.
