Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio 2022: Karrie Webb returns, but not to stay


LPGA Tour 2022: Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio, Boca Raton, Florida:  27-30 January 

Karrie Webb will be playing, but not staying

From LPGA Communications:

Rumors had been swirling around Karrie Webb, that her entry into the 2022 Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio field meant the World Golf Hall of Fame member was on the comeback trail. She nixed that idea during her press conference on Tuesday at Boca Rio Golf Club.

“I don't think there is any full time, or even a big chunk of part-time golf in me,” said Webb, a Palm Beach County resident, where the second LPGA Tour event of the season is being contested. “When you're away from it for a long time, there’s a lot of things that you do miss about it. I think it’s very convenient that I could stay at home this week and play in a tournament for the first time in a while, and, you know, not feel the rigors of having to travel with luggage.

“I'm just excited to be back, see people I haven't seen for a while and to be around the atmosphere on the LPGA.”  Read more

From Golfweek, by Tom D'Angelo:

BOCA RATON, Fla. – The next time you are cruising along the Intracoastal and spot a 32-foot Intrepid navigating the smooth waters, check out who is piloting the vessel.

It just might be a seven-time major champion and World Golf Hall of Fame member who is in the conversation of the greatest female golfers of all time.

Karrie Webb has been taking advantage of the South Florida lifestyle for 23 years, whether it is fishing off her boat or docking it at Two Georges...  

Webb enjoys her time on the water and her freedom to visit her family in Australia.  Read more

As well as Karrie Webb, two other Aussies are in the field at LPGA Gainbridge:  Katherine Kirk, and Australian WPGA Champion Su Oh.
