Mallon released from hospital

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 ambulance rate increased to as many as 290 beats per minute.

Dr. Richard Fogel said she was diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia, a cardiac rhythm disturbance that results in a racing heartbeat. Mallon went through a procedure on Tuesday in which heat distributed through a catheter destroyed a small piece of tissue where the rhythm arises.

Fogel, who lives close to the Crooked Stick course and was in the gallery when Mallon won her singles match, said she was expected to make a full recovery and should be able to return to the U.S. LPGA Tour next week in Los Angeles.

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 reports.
