annah Green’s new routine after the CME Group Tour Championship is to fly out as soon as the tournament is over and begin the 30-hour journey back to Perth, Australia. She’ll arrive on Wednesday and spend two weeks in quarantine at a hotel in Perth before flying out on December 8.
Green went on another quarantine in the middle of the year, skipping the Amundi Evian Championship to focus on his Olympic preparations at home.
“I have to say, I’m a little exhausted,” she admitted. “It’s quite difficult, even though I haven’t played as many events as usual.”
What might make enduring the hotel quarantine a little easier? This week, I’m leaving Florida with $2.5 million. She has already won $1 million for winning the Aon Risk Reward Challenge over the course of the season. She’s currently two behind leader Jeongeun Lee6 after an opening 66. What would she get if she also won the CME?
“I guess a bigger house?” says the narrator. she stated “I’m not sure,” says the narrator. “Perhaps a house over here,” says the narrator.
Green spends her off-weeks in the United States, where she stays in digs provided by Golf Australia and shares a room with Su Oh. In Orlando, there’s never a shortage of Aussie pros to train with, especially now that there are fewer travels back home.
“Coming over here four months at a time has been a great sacrifice,” she added, “and hopefully next year will be a little bit more normal, and hopefully I won’t feel so homesick.”
She stated that owning a home in the United States would be a good luxury to have more personal space.
Green, on the other hand, is appreciative for the assistance she has received from her homeland. Especially when it comes to Aussie icon Karrie Webb, who resides in South Florida and was out on Thursday at Tiburon watching Green. Webb last saw Green compete in person at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship at Hazeltine, which she won.
“I’m not sure whether she’ll follow too many more holes now that the rain is coming in,” Green added, “which I don’t blame her for.” It’s difficult outside of the ropes.
“However, it’s fantastic that she’s always there for us.” There are a couple amateur golfers here right now, and she played golf with them the day before yesterday, so she’s always giving back. She probably has no idea how significant it is to those athletes and myself. I have to express my gratitude to her.”
Green said she normally works on jigsaw puzzles, watches sports, and wastes time on social media during the forthcoming confinement.
“I just wish I could get some fresh air,” she explained, “but I’m not sure that will happen in Perth.“
