Catriona Matthew’s side are looking to win the event for the first time since their record-breaking victory in 2013, having lost to Team USA in the past two editions of the biennial contest.

McIlroy and Garcia were part of Europe’s winning Ryder Cup team at Le Golf National last year, with the pair alongside a host of other former European players in offering their best wishes to their female counterparts.
