The Solheim Cup starts in Gleneagles on Friday and Europe offers to win back the trophy from the United States.

The 16th staging of the competition consists of 24 of the world's leading players competing against each other in match play format.

The tournament follows the same structure as the Ryder Cup with 28 games played over three days.

There are four quarters and four quarters from 8:10 BST and 12:40 BST on both Friday and Saturday.

And the tournament includes 12 singles games of 11:40 BST on Sunday

USA has won the last two and has an overall record of 10 wins for the five of Europe.

Europe last won in Colorado in 2013, but a good sign is that Scotland has organized the Solheim Cup twice – and Europe has both won them.

How does the Solheim Cup work?

Europe has twice organized the Solheim Cup in Scotland

A total of 28 games, each with a value of one point, take place during three days, and the first team to reach 14½ points wins the trophy. If the matches end in a tie, each team scores half a point.

Should the league end 14-14, the US will retain the trophy after winning at home in 2017.

In four-ball games, teams of two play each other and the player with the lowest score on every hole, it wins for their team – if the scores are the same, the hole is halved.

Four matches also concern two-man teams. However, there is only one ball per team in the game where players make alternative shots. Again, the lowest score wins the hole.

The 12 singles games on Sunday also follow the match play format.
