REUTERS: The Solheim Cup, women's golf biennial team competition between the US and Europe, will move to even years starting in 2024, the LPGA said on Monday (Nov 16).

The Solheim Cup Committee approved the change following the announcement that the Ryder Cup will move to an odd-year schedule, after the 2020 competition was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"With the world sporting schedule changing so much due to current difficulties, we felt it was in the best interest of the Solheim Cup to return to an off-year rotation with the Ryder Cup," said Dennis Baggett, executive director of the Solheim Cup in a statement.

"When the competition returns to the United States in 2024, I have no doubt fans will have an incredible opportunity to celebrate the best women golfers from the United States and Europe as they represent their home countries."

The 2021 Solheim Cup will take place from Sep 4 to Sep 6 at Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio with Europe hosting the 2023 tournament from Sep 22 to Sep 24 at Finca Cortesin in Andalucia, Spain.

The Ryder Cup will be played one week later in Italy.
