I’ve worked relentlessly with my crew and the LPGA to find a way to compete in each but regretably at this stage, there are no assurances on company options and the chance of missing the at the time-in-a-life time possibility to compete as an Olympian is simply much too superior. I just can’t wait around to return to Evian in quite a few yrs to come and want to thank the event team for their being familiar with.”
