Stacy Lewis to captain successive Solheim Cup teams
2nd Solheim Cup captaincy announced for Stacy Lewis
Two-time major champion and long-time Mizuno player Stacy Lewis role as U.S. Solheim Cup Team captain has been extended until 2024 – now covering two tournaments. Lewis is already the serving US captain and will lead at Finca Cortesin in Andalucia, Spain . Lewis represented the U.S. on the 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017 Solheim Cup Teams.
Mizuno now has 2 current serving team captains – with Luke Donald the current 2023 Ryder Cup European captain. Curiously both Donald and Lewis were also world #1 ranked players at the same time.
To have both Luke and Stacy as serving team captains more than a decade after they both held world #1 status is a unique achievement and very special for Mizuno.
LAUREN SMITH, MIZUNO
This is such an amazing honor, to be asked to again captain the U.S. Solheim Cup Team. Receiving the first call was one of the highest points of my career, and I am truly grateful to add this second opportunity. I’ve said it many times – representing the United States and wearing our colors are experiences that stand out in any player’s career. To have the chance to lead our country’s best players twice, and especially in 2024 outside our nation’s capital, is a true privilege.
Lewis is a 13-time LPGA Tour winner, earning major titles at the 2011 Chevron Championship and the 2013 AIG Women’s Open. She spent 264 consecutive weeks from 2011-16 ranked in the top 10 in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings, including 25 weeks at No. 1, and was the 2012 and 2014 Rolex LPGA Player of the Year.
