A brief look at Sunday from the Solheim Cup at Colorado Golf Club.

SCORE: Europe 18, United States 10.

EUROPEAN STARS: Caroline Hedwall became the first player in Solheim Cup history to go 5-0. She also made the putt that gave Europe its 14th point and secured the cup.

AMERICAN STARS: Brittany Lang led all Americans with three points, capped by her 2-and-1 win over Azahara Munoz.

BLOWOUT: The eight-point margin was the largest in the 23-year history of the event.

SHOT OF THE DAY: Hedwall's approach on No. 18 to 4 feet to set up her clinching victory against Michelle Wie.

PUTT OF THE DAY: Charley Hull's 45-foot birdie on No. 6 gave her a lead she wouldn't relinquish in a 5-and-4 win over Paula Creamer.

QUOTABLE: ''They closed the door a heck of a lot better than we did.'' -American assistant captain Dottie Pepper.

NEXT TIME: Sept. 18-20, 2015, at St. Leon-Rot golf course in Germany.
