Lorenzi to captain WPEG team to play against PGA Seniors

London, 27th August - Marie-Laure de Lorenzi, from France, is to captain of the Women Professional Golfers' European team that will play against the European PGA Senior Tour in the inaugural Praia D'El Rey European Cup at Praia D'El Rey, Portugal, from 14th - 16th November

The Cup is a ten-a-side match, and the women's side will be made up of the top eight available players from Order of Merit after the Air France Open de Deauville 24th - 26th October plus the captain's two choices.

"It is a great honour to be chosen to captain the side, although I know I wasn't the first choice," said Marie-Laure. "The problem is that no one knows much about the match, and I don't know if many of the top players are going to be available. "But I am going out to the venue next month and, hopefully, we will manage to clarify a few aspects."

At present none of the top players - Annika Sorenstam, Laura Davies or US Open Champion Alison Nicholas - have committed themselves to an event that falls at a time when they will be competing in Japan.

Tommy Horton is to captain the PGA Seniors side.
