LONDON (AP) - Former top-ranked golfer Annika Sorenstam says she’s turned down the chance to be captain for Europe in the 2013 Solheim Cup against the United States.

The 41-year-old Swede says she “simply cannot provide the necessary time that the European team, Solheim family and the entire event deserves.”

Sorenstam, who retired in 2008, has two young children. She played in the Solheim Cup eight times, winning 24 points in 37 matches.

Sorenstam says on her website “the Solheim Cup has been an important part of my career, and I hope to one day lead the European team.”

Europe will defend the title it won last September when the U.S. hosts the biennial competition next year in Parker, Colo.
