Solheim Cup: Wales' Amy Boulden targets Europe team place

Koch keen to keep tabs on Boulden

Welsh golfer Amy Boulden says she will need to consistently be in the top five of the events she plays in to fulfil her ambition of representing Europe at the 2015 Solheim Cup.

Swedish golfer Carin Koch, 44, will captain Europe as they seek a third successive title in St Leon-Rot, near Heidelberg in Germany in September.

"I know that to get into the team I have to probably win or be near enough top five every week," said Boulden.

"I don't think it's unrealistic."

Boulden, 21, who was the Ladies European Tour Rookie of the Year winner last season, added: "That is a team I want to be a part of."

The only other Welsh golfer to represent Europe at the Solheim Cup is Becky Brewerton, who played in the event in 2007 and 2009.

Although Brewerton's form at the moment may not see her pushing for automatic selection, there could still be hope according to Koch.

"Becky [Brewerton] is not up there in the rankings right now but it's early in the year," said Koch.

"There's a long summer and a few competitions to play.

"I know that she [Brewerton] is a great golfer and she's played well in the Solheim Cup before."
