Europe won the past 3 singles matches to seal a sensational 141/2-131/2 Solheim Cup victory over the United States.
Bronte Law, that moments before won her game over the 17th, sprinted up the 18th fairway to join the celebrations.
“She got a little stick for receiving that pick, but it shows she was the perfect one,” explained Europe captain Catriona Matthew.
Pettersen was chosen as a vice-captain after taking some time. But after returning this year to perform, the 39-year-old was given a surprise 10th Solheim Cup look by Matthew.
And her captain’s religion was repaid by her with a victory on the final green.
American Marina Alex missed a 10-foot putt to halve her match to earn a 14th stage that would have seen the trophy is retained by that the US.
Even though Pettersen sized up what she believed is putt to win her match that point was being sealed by Law back.
That meant a Pettersen birdie would seal the win, while a miss could have observed the US reach 14 points and keep the cupbut the Norwegian held her guts to spark wild celebrations.
Pettersen confessed she didn’t know her putt was to win the prize.
“It really was a big blur,” she explained. “I did not know. I was only attempting to make a birdie.”
