Beatriz Recari Retiring to a Broader and More Relaxing Life

On Tuesday, Spain’s Beatriz Recari made it official. The Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio, the event nearest her U.S. home in Miami, will be her grand finale. The 34-year-old from Pamplona will officially retire from the LPGA Tour after this week. She does so with three LPGA Tour wins and one Ladies European Tour victory in a 16-year professional career.

Fighting emotions, Recari said, “After a bit of soul searching, I felt like it was the right time for me to move on. You know, enjoy all the good moments that I have on the course and the not-so-good moments, because they had a lot of silver linings. This game has been such an important part of my life that I’m so excited to be here and have a little bit of closure and have the opportunity to do so.

“It would’ve been okay if I hadn’t had this opportunity (to close out a career this way), but if I’m given the chance to be again on the golf course and have that one last feel of what it is competing at the highest level, it’s such a blessing that I’m going to take it and just enjoy this last week.”

Recari started on the LET as an 18-year-old in 2006 while also studying economics at the University of Navarra. That came after victories at the Women’s Spanish Amateur and the Women’s French Amateur Championships.

But all was not rosy in her life. In 2007, her health failed, and she had to face a hard reality. Weighing under 100 pounds with her hair falling out, Recari accepted that she had an eating disorder. After lots of work and plenty of support, she battled back. She won the Finnair Masters on the LET in 2009, and then joined the LPGA Tour where she won in 2010 and twice in 2013. Just before her victory at the 2013 Kia Classic, she was introduced as an ambassador for the Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness. For many, it was the first time they knew of Recari’s struggles.

Now, after many hip, back and leg-related injuries, the most recent of which required a couple of surgeries, the Spanish star is comfortable with her past and her future. 

Local Legend Jaye Marie Green Fired Up to Compete Close to Home

BOCA RATON, Fla. – In 2020, Jaye Marie Green said she asked for what ‘felt like 100 tickets to the Gainbridge LPGA.’ Boca Rio Golf Club, settled right in her stomping grounds, made the local feel cool, calm and collected as she competed close to home. Fast forward to 2022, and Green feels the exact same way. 

“Seeing so many people out and knowing every face, I’m like, ‘Oh my, I know almost everyone here.’ It’s really special, and it’s different playing in front of a home crowd,” said Green. “It has its advantages and disadvantages. It’s really cool.”

Her familiarity with the host course helped Green captured a tied for 19th finish two years ago, her only top-20 result of the pandemic-shortened season. 

The tournament moved to Lake Nona Golf & Country Club for 2021, but has made its hearty return to its original home this year. Green is ecstatic, especially with her newfound mindset focused on putting and setting attainable goals. She has also been practicing with close friends Marina AlexBeth Daniel and Karrie Webb, who is making her first start on Tour since the 2020 Pelican Women’s Championship and continues to have memorable moments when she steps on the course.

“We’re three down with three to go, and classic Karrie Webb holes out from about 100 yards [on No. 16 at Boca Rio Golf Club] to close us out, that was great,” said Green. “Like, what else do you expect from a Hall of Famer?”

In 2021, Green recorded two top-10 finishes, including a season-best result of a tie for seventh at the ShopRite LPGA Classic. This week, she continues the partnership with caddie Jack Clarke from last year, who has an interesting connection to the Boca Raton stop. Clarke’s father caddied for 2020 champion Madelene Sagstrom, Jack’s significant other, when she won and Green said Clarke has been a wonderful addition to her team.

“Yep, my caddie, or should I say, which way is the better way? Madelene Sagstrom’s boyfriend is my caddie, or my caddie is Madelene Sagstrom’s boyfriend?” joked Green. “No one is going to replace my brother [and former caddie], but I feel like I have such a good caddie-work relationship where I feel free, and he was really great in those times where he could tell I missed my brother or got lonely on the road. Because I’ve never traveled by myself until last year. He has been great and our relationship is awesome. I feel very lucky and blessed that I found Jack so quick.”

Karrie Webb Returns to Competition, But Don’t Call it a Comeback

BOCA RATON, Fla., – 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.”

Her last start on the LPGA Tour was at the 2020 Pelican Women’s Championship. While she has been away from competition for an extended period, Webb has still been involved in the game with her Karrie Webb Series Scholarship and the inaugural Australian WPGA Championship.

“It came together pretty late last year. The men’s Australian PGA was being held, but that was in doubt because they couldn’t get international players in the field and there was an interest to include the women, to have a Women’s PGA Championship, so this year they played in the same field as the men,” said Webb. “What was really promising for me is there was interest to have a standalone event going forward, 2023 [and beyond].

“When I was asked to have the trophy named after me, that was obviously a very great honor and not something you ever think is going to happen. I got to design the trophy. I’ve held up a few trophies, but never had a chance to design one that hopefully many women will hold up for years to come.”

Su Oh captured the title and raised the maiden Karrie Webb Cup on January 17 in Queensland. A past recipient from Webb’s scholarship series, it was “really special” for Webb even though she could not make the trip to Australia. Oh is one of the many Australians that Webb stays connected with, despite Webb not regularly teeing it up.

“I communicate with all the girls quite often, actually. They’re all on my favorites for live scoring, and I now understand what my parents went through all these years of watching live scoring, especially if the telecast isn’t on or I’m not able to see the telecast,” Webb said with a smile.” It’s stressful watching live scoring when you care about the results that the girls have.

“It’s exciting this year. We’ve got two Aussie rookies, Karis Davidson and Stephanie Kyriacou, both great players. Karis was one of my scholarship winners; Stephanie wasn’t, but I followed her couple years in Europe and knew her before she turned pro. Both great players, and it’s great that we’ve got such a big Aussie contingent on Tour at the moment.”
