Grant atop Solheim standings; Rahm leads FedEx list

Following her tie for 16th at the Amundi Evian Championship, the fourth of five LPGA majors in 2023, former Arizona State standout Linn Grant has ascended to the top spot of the European team’s Solheim Cup standings.

Grant, who won her first LPGA tournament two weeks ago, is rising fast in the Rolex Rankings as well, checking in at No. 20.

Fellow ASU alum Carlota Ciganda is fourth on the European squad standings. A five-time Solheim Cupper, Ciganda was disqualified from the Evian for signing an incorrect scorecard, a situation that arose out of a slow-play penalty assessed on her final hole of her first round. After being put on the clock and then being penalized the two shots, she refused to acknowledge the penalty and signed her card without adding the two shots, leading to her disqualification.
