At the 2013 Solheim Cup, taking place Aug. 13-18, a trio of IMG Academy alumni are taking part in the action. For Team USA, Paula Creamer and Jessica Korda are helping lead the way, while fellow alumna Jodi Ewart-Shadoff of England was selected as a member of Team Europe. On the first morning of play, the Europeans jumped out to an early 3-1 advantage over the U.S., with Korda coming up as America's shining star. Korda, teaming with Morgan Pressel, helped the US avoid a sweep on the first day when she sank the winning putt to best Ewart-Shadoff and her teammate, Catriona Matthew of Scotland. 

Notably, IMG Academy Director of Golf David Whelan is on the scene, accompanying his longtime student, Paula Creamer (Whelan, pictured left, with Creamer).
