Female Djokovic? Unvaccinated golfer Lynn Grant

In June of last year, Lynn Grant (23, Sweden) became the first female player to win the DP World Tour (formerly European Tour) event. The Volvo Scandinavian Mixed Tournament, co-hosted by the DP World Tour and the LET (European Women’s Golf Tour), was attended by 78 men and women, and the winner was determined regardless of gender. did.

Although the men’s and women’s teeing areas are located differently, it is not easy for women to adapt to the hard green where men play. Grant was 14 strokes behind the second best female player.

In 2018, when she was an amateur, Grant finished 4th at the US Women’s Open, and she showed outstanding performance even during her time at Arizona State University. In 2022 she is a rookie on the LPGA and she was looking forward to his performance.

But last year on the LPGA Tour, Grant was rarely seen. She said it was because he hadn’t participated in the US competition at all.

Novak Djokovic of tennis did not participate in the Australian Open and the US Open last year because of his belief that he would not get the vaccine. Grant had the same reason.

Last year, Grant said, “Of course I want to be on the LPGA Tour. However, she is not considered to compete in the US competition as there are restrictions on entry to the US for those who have not been vaccinated against the coronavirus. I know there are people who don’t understand that I’m not playing in America, and I respect their opinion. I hope others will also respect the reason I have not been vaccinated. The reason for not getting vaccinated is what I want to protect my family and team.”

Grant competed in competitions outside the United States. On the European Women’s Tour she won four times. On the LPGA Tour, she competed in six tournaments, including the BMW Ladies Championship, which she held in Korea, and she finished in the top eight four times.

Grant was one of the brightest new players in women’s golf last year. But she’s lost half of 2022 because of the coronavirus, or maybe because of her vaccine-related family beliefs. Her first major of the year, she’s also hard at the Chevron Championship.

Djokovic missed two out of four Grand Slam events last year due to her vaccine beliefs, but she made up for it by winning Wimbledon last year and the Australian Open this year. 바카라

Will Grant find lost time like Djokovic? On the 16th, she participates in the LET Aramco Ladies Invitational at the Royal Green Golf Course in King Abdullah Economic City, near Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Although it is an LET competition, it is a big event sponsored by Saudi oil money. The prize money is $5 million, which is the highest among women’s tournaments, except for major tournaments and the final round of the LPGA.

The organizers invited Lydia Ko, Jeon In-ji, Kim Hyo-joo, and Atiya Titikkun. 12 players within the top 20 in the world rankings and 11 major winners will participate. It’s a good stage for Grant to make her own presence in the golf world.

Grant did not participate in interviews at the contest, perhaps because of the controversy over her inoculation.

Lynn Grant’s grandfather played golf in Scotland and immigrated to Sweden. Her father played on the Swedish tour and had seven wins on the senior tour.
