Hedwall's singles triumph over Wie enabled her to become the first participant in event history to log an undefeated week -- she went 5-0 to pace the European squad.
Leading 10 1/2-5 1/2 coming into Sunday's final singles round, Charley Hull got Europe off to good start with a 5 & 4 rout of American Paula Creamer.
The Europeans officially clinched the title when Catriona Matthew halved her match with Gerina Piller.
