PARKER, Colo., Aug. 18 (UPI) -- Caroline Hedwall's close 1-up win over Michelle Wie Sunday highlighted a dominating victory by Europe over the United States to retain the Solheim Cup.

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.
