PARKER, Colo. (AP) -- Europe has its largest lead ever on American soil going into the final day at the Solheim Cup.

English teen Charley Hull finally felt nervous and responded with a clutch putt that set up the Europeans for a momentum-setting win Saturday. Another rookie, Carlota Ciganda, made a 12-foot birdie putt on the last hole to deliver another point.

The Americans thought they had momentum after a strong morning session. But they failed to win a point in the afternoon. With one match still on the course -- thanks to another embarrassing ruling that took nearly a half-hour -- Europe was assured of at least a four-point lead going to Sunday singles.

No team has ever rallied to win from such a deficit since the Solheim Cup began in 1990.
