The native of Fairfax, Va., Jenny Suh knew this day would one day come but she wanted it to be on her own terms. She’ll get that chance, deciding to walk away from the game this week and in turn walk away from a dream come true. What she does from here, she doesn’t know. She just knows her LPGA days are behind her after missing the cut at the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic.
Suh finished tied for 22nd at the Final Stage of the Qualifying Tournament to earn her LPGA membership for the 2011 season.
“I’ve played a lot longer than I ever anticipated that I would already, and to make it to the LPGA and play at the highest level was my dream,” Suh said. “So I did it and now I can leave happy. I feel very fortunate because a lot of my friends couldn’t leave on their own terms, like they’re injured or their health wasn’t good. But to me, this is my decision, so I’m very happy.”
