Lexi Thompson withdraws from the Women’s British Open to “recharge.” Read her full statement.

Published

on

Lexi Thompson announced via Instagram Wednesday that she has withdrawn from next week’s Ricoh Women’s British Open, as mentioned in the Morning 9.

Thompson says she needs to “recharge my mental batteries” and she has not “felt like myself for quite some time.”

The 23-year-old said “the events of the past year and a half (on and off the golf course)” have “taken a tremendous toll on me both mentally and emotionally.” This is presumably a reference to her mother’s cancer diagnosis and the CME Group Tour Championship penalty drama.

Thompson says she plans to return to action at the Indy Women in Tech Championship on Aug. 16.

Her full post, below.

Hi everyone,  I wanted to let you know that I am officially withdrawing from the 2018 Ricoh Women's British Open.  It is extremely difficult for me not to play in this prestigious Major, but I realized recently that I need to take some time to work on myself. The events of the past year and a half (on and off the golf course) have taken a tremendous toll on me both mentally and emotionally. I have not truly felt like myself for quite some time.  I am therefore taking this time to recharge my mental batteries, and to focus on myself away from the game of professional golf.Thank you all so much  for your continued support. I hope to see everyone soon as I plan to defend my title at the 2018 Indy Women in Tech Championship. Lexi

While many will see great significance in Thompson’s decision to step away, Golf Channel’s Tim Rosaforte has a more balanced take.

    Just an aside… I’m sure her social media makes her money, but maybe a break from that would save her a lot of time…

    It is just weird that she will return mid-August. That is not such a long time to really get away from it all if you ask me..

      Exactly right, IMO Lexi should take a minimum of 6 months, maybe a year, with appropriate therapy, and dont mean pumping iron and the like. Those are simply distractions.

    I had no idea she had to face all of those challenges off the course. The garbage that she had to endure on the course would have been more than enough to merit some time away. Tough kid no doubt. Hope she finds some peace of mind.

Adidas Golf launches new COLD.RDY apparel collection 

Published

on

Adidas Golf has unveiled its new COLD.RDY apparel collection designed to keep golfers warm throughout the Winter season.

The new line from Adidas focuses on giving golfers highly technical layering pieces that offer lightweight warmth, while also providing freedom from the cold. 

The COLD.RDY collection contains the hoodie made famous by Tyrrell Hatton who donned the piece on his way to victory at the European Tour’s BMW Championship. The hoodie features a jersey-lined hood with a drawcord along with a slight droptail hem for a modern finish.

Speaking on the new collection, Shaun Madigan, global director of apparel, Adidas Golf said

“How a player feels over a shot – that confidence and focus – shouldn’t change if it’s a hot summer day or there’s a sudden wind chill. Knowing golfers rely on layers this time of year to keep their seasons going, we wanted to give them the maximum amount of warmth possible without adding weight so that they could get the most out of every swing. COLD.RDY is our best technology and material innovation that accomplishes this to date.” 

While the collection is anchored by jackets and vests for both men and women, the COLD.RDY line also provides players with some versatility through unique styles. All COLD.RDY products come with UV 50+ sun protection for those fall and winter days when the sun is out.

The new COLD.RDY apparel is available on adidas.com, the Adidas app, and at select retailers worldwide.
