Natalie Gulbis named USA Solheim Cup assistant captain

Natalie Gulbis will serve as assistant captain of the 2023 USA Solheim Cup team, captain Stacy Lewis announced Thursday.

Gulbis, 39, won the 2007 Evian Masters and competed on three Solheim Cup teams. She joins Morgan Pressel as an assistant to Lewis at the event, scheduled for Sept. 22-24 at Finca Cortesin in Spain.

“When I accepted this captaincy, I knew that I wanted the team around me to love this event as much as I do. Natalie completely fits that role,” Lewis said in a news release. “I know her positive spirit will be an awesome influence in the team room.”

In Solheim play in 2005, 2007 and 2009, Gulbis had a 5-4-1 record, including a 2-0-1 mark in singles matches. The United States won each of the three competitions.

Gulbis has played on the LPGA Tour since 2002.

“There’s nothing more inspiring than wearing the Red, White and Blue and representing the United States,” she said. “Playing on my three Solheim Cup teams is among the highlights of my career. … Our week in Spain is going to be an amazing experience, as will joining with Stacy, Morgan and the rest of the team to bring our best American spirit to the course.”

Suzann Pettersen is the captain for Team Europe.
