Annika Sorenstam has been appointed vice captain for the 2013 European Solheim Cup team. Captain Liselotte Neumann announced the selection Tuesday at Colorado Golf Club, which will host the event next August. Carin Koch also was named a vice captain. Sorenstam filled a similar role in 2011 when the Europeans won the Cup in Ireland. She has played in the event eight times, accumulating 24 points in 37 matches. The former world No. 1 golfer retired in 2008. Sorenstam had quite a career as she won 90 tournaments, including 10 major championships. Sorenstam said she is elated at the chance to help Neumann, who was her role model as a young golfer. U.S. captain Meg Mallon announced in July that Dottie Pepper will be her vice captain.
