SUGAR GROVE, Ill. – Juli Inkster really has reason to dance now.

Paula Creamer's 25-footer gave the United States a 4½-3½ lead after the first day of the Solheim Cup, and made Inkster the highest-scoring U.S. player in the event's history. The 49-year-old has scored 17½ points, one more than Meg Mallon, an assistant captain this year.

Only Europe's Annika Sorenstam (24 points) and Laura Davies (23) have scored more points than Inkster in Solheim Cup play.

Play continues Saturday with eight more doubles matches. The Americans need 14 points to win their third consecutive Solheim Cup while the Europeans need 14½ to win their first on U.S. soil.
