The Swede, who retired in 2008 and is third on the all-time list with 72 LPGA Tour titles, said she decided to play at the February 25-28 Gainbridge LPGA event as part of her preparations for the US Senior Women's Open.

"I have no other plans (to play at other events)," said the 50-year-old.

"I've been away for 13 years. I don't have the hunger that I did. I'm just excited to be playing and swinging the club. When you get older you have some other priorities in your life and mine is to be a mother and a wife and businesswoman.

"LPGA has a huge part in my life ... but that's not why I'm here, to create more.

"When I do play later in the summer I want to feel like I can compete. To do that, you have to get back inside the ropes."
