ST. LEON-ROT, Germany (AP) Suzann Pettersen apologized Monday for making the controversial call that left United States players fuming before their memorable victory in the Solheim Cup.

Pettersen had demanded American rookie Alison Lee be penalized at the 17th hole of their morning fourball match for picking the ball up when she thought the putt was conceded.

The Norwegian, who initially said Sunday she did the right thing and would "totally" do it again, took to social media to say she "never felt more gutted and truly sad about what went down."
