OWINGS MILLS, Maryland (AP) -- The inaugural International Crown is unique for what it isn't.

Thirty-two elite players from eight countries will compete for four days at Caves Valley Golf Club to determine which nation has the best female golfers in the world.

It's not about individual play. None of the eight teams has a captain, and unlike the Solheim Cup, this isn't just the United States versus Europe.

The U.S. is the top seed. South Korea, Japan, Sweden, Australia, Thailand, Spain and Taiwan are also competing to raise the trophy after the final ball drops into the hole on Sunday.

American Stacy Lewis, an 11-time tour winner, says: "It's got a little bit of a different feel. But it's cool. It's something we needed for a long time."
