Stacy Lewis withdrew from the US Solheim Cup team with a back injury.

Lewis, 34, was named as one picked by the American captain July Inkster, but her back flared up last week and she feels unable to turn it off at Gleneagles.

Her place on the team will be occupied by 26-year-old rookie Ally McDonald.

"I know this was an incredibly difficult decision for Stacy, but she also has the best interests of the team in heart and soul," said Inkster.

McDonald ended up outside of an automatic place and was already in Scotland as the team's first alternative.

The Solheim Cup is part of BBC Sport & # 39; s Change The Game campaign. #ChangeTheGame from BBC Sport celebrates a summer full of live sporting women's action and additional programming on TV, radio and online.
