Carin Koch went 4-0-1 at the Solheim Cup, and Kelli Kuehne went 0-4, but there were plenty of other winners and losers in the wake of the U.S. comeback.
Ozzy Osbourne The MTV family man is no longer television's most offensive potty mouth, thanks to Suzann Pettersen's nationally broadcast f-bomb during an NBC interview following her Sunday singles match.
Mark Calcavecchia Calc's famous fold at the 1991 Ryder Cup is no longer the standard for match-play meltdowns, thanks to Michele Redman, who allowed Pettersen to win the final five holes and steal a halve. Laura Diaz She was a fist-pumping birdie machine in her debut, putting together a 3-1 record and continuing to prove she's more than just a pretty face in short shorts.
Mr. Blackwell The Solheim Cup offered a rainbow of fashion don'ts: Cristie Kerr's ugly red-white-and-blue shoes; Kuehne's oversized heart-shaped rhinestone belt buckle, which was so ostentatious that Liberace would have blanched; and Patty Sheehan's face-painted stars and stripes, which is cute if you're five years old, not 45.
Emilee Klein Another rookie who went 3-1, Klein stoked the U.S. comeback with her victory over veteran Helen Alfredsson in the third singles match.
Catrin Nilsmark The loose-lipped 2003 European captain created a firestorm with her pre-match jabs at Kerr, Kuehne and Redman, but Nilsmark was prophetic. Her punching bags went a combined 2-9-1.
Sheehan Her captain's picks—Pat Hurst and Kelly Robbins—came up with huge singles wins, and her celebratory cartwheel was the most impressive athletic achievement of the Cup. Laura Davies She ran out of gas against Meg Mallon, but over the first two days the big-bopping Brit pulled off a series of outrageous shots, a reminder that she is still the women's game's most overpowering, if uneven, talent.
She was reduced to tears at the last Solheim—and that was before getting thumped 5 and 4 by Juli Inkster in singles. This time around she was lucky to squeak out a halve against lesser light Wendy Ward, choking on a three-footer to lose the 14th hole, then flushing a jittery chip at 18. NBC It was shameful that the network ended Saturday's telecast before the completion of play, depriving viewers of the excitement of three matches that were decided on the final hole. All the more galling was that throughout its dismissive coverage, NBC was constantly flogging its upcoming 15� hours of Ryder Cup overkill.
