Michelle Wie-West was confirmed as assistant captain of the 2021 US Solheim Cup team on Thursday but has not ruled out a playing role despite not competing in a PGA Tour event for more than a year.
Wie, who has won three Solheim Cups, said she did not wait for Pat Hurst to ask her to be part of next year’s effort but approached the US captain moments after her appointment was announced in January.

“When I actually heard it, I was like, this would be amazing,” Wie told a conference call. “I would love to be assistant captain under her.”
