Indianapolis: Meg Mallon, who made the clinching putt when the Americans won the Solheim Cup, was released from a hospital on Wednesday after being treated for a rapid heart rate. Mallon, 42, was taken by ambulance to The Heart Center of Indiana after closing ceremonies on Sunday, when her heart rate increased. Dr Richard Fogel said she was diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia, a cardiac rhythm disturbance that results in a racing heartbeat. He said she was expected to make a full recovery and should be able to return to the US LPGA Tour in Los Angeles next week. A three-time major champion, Mallon went 2-1-0 in the Solheim Cup. Her 6-foot par putt on the 16th hole ensured the Americans of the final point they needed to win back the cup from Europe. Mallon went on to defeat Karen Stupples on the next hole, 3 and 1. She has won more points than any other American in Solheim Cup history. (AP)
