Ai Suzuki has withdrawn from the UL International Crown due to injury. She will be replaced on Team Japan by Ayako Uehara
While Uehara hasn’t yet won on the LPGA Tour, she’s no stranger to a big stage, having posted nine top 10 finishes in her career. She recorded her best finish in a major of eighth at the ANA Inspiration earlier this year. Most recently, Uehara finished third at the Cambia Portland Classic matching her career-best on the LPGA Tour.
