“It’s so special and has been a dream of mine growing up,” said Dryburgh, who will make her Solheim Cup debut.

In addition to Denmark’s Emily Pedersen and Sweden’s Madelene Sagstrom and Caroline Hedwall, captain Suzann Pettersen announced her four wildcard picks on Tuesday.

In addition to Sagstrom and Hedwall, Linn Grant, Anna Nordqvist, and Maja Stark have already qualified for the 12-strong team.

The squad also includes Leona Maguire of Ireland, Celine Boutier of France, and Carlota Ciganda of Spain.

“Being part of Team Europe means so much to me, and winning in Japan gave me so much confidence,” Dryburgh said.

“Gemma has had a fantastic past two years,” said Norwegian skipper Pettersen, who holed the winning putt at Gleneagles in 2019 and was a non-playing vice-captain two years ago as Catriona Matthew again led the side to victory in Ohio.

“She has elevated her game and started to feel comfortable among the best players in the world. I couldn’t think of a nicer person to complement the team.”
