Incoming UCLA freshman Alison Lee helped the USA to a victory Wednesday at the Jr. Solheim Cup at the Inverness Golf Club in Englewood, CO.

Lee, a three-time Solheim Cup veteran lobbied for the anchor spot in the singles finals, got it and delivered. Her 3 and 1 victory over Jessica Vasillic of Sweden served as a bit of revenge and completed a stellar junior career.

The USA won the match 14.5-9.5 after winning the singles competition, 8.5.-3.5. The match was tied 6-6 entering Wednesday’s matches.

Bronte Law, another incoming UCLA freshman, played for Great Britain & Ireland. Law lost her singles match 5 and 3 to Bethany Wu of Diamond Bar. In the tournament, Law recorded a record of 2-1-0.

Lee, who arrived in Englewood fresh off a run to the semifinals at the U.S. Women’s Amateur, won her match on the 17th hole with a birdie. Earlier, she had built a 3-up lead after making a par at the 14th. Vasillic cut the lead to two holes when Lee bogeyed the 16th. But Lee secured the match on the next hole. The singles victory by Lee avenged a pair of foursomes and four-ball losses to Vasillic on Tuesday.

Lee told Julie Williams of Golweek, “This tournament, this format, playing as a team, it’s so much fun.”

The Junior Solheim Cup is a biennial Trans-Atlantic team match play competition featuring the 12 best female junior golfers (ages 12-18) from Europe and the United States.
