Jodi Ewart Shadoff “back to 100 per cent” ahead of Solheim Cup
Jodi Ewart Shadoff has played down any harm concerns and insists she is”100 per cent” fit to signify Team Europe in the Solheim Cup this past week.
Ewart Shadoff was affected by a issue during the majority of the LPGA Tour season, then withdrawing mid-tournament from the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship in June and missing a seven-week stretch during May and April.
The Englishwoman underwent minor surgery to correct the matter, soon after being passed a captain’s choice, together with Ewart Shadoff prepared to create her third Solheim Cup appearance.
“It [the injury] has plagued me since early April time,” Shadoff stated. “Clearly I attempted to work , but I just got to this point where nothing was really working.
“I managed to see a physician that was really experienced athletes and, in particular, golfers, and he essentially said I was only needing some nerve pain in my lower back.
“The procedure was quite straightforward, just keyhole. Went in and cleared that nerve discomfort, and I’m back to 100 percent.”
When the coming of her nightclubs meant she was not able to practice along with her teammates ewart Shadoff preparations were earlier in the week.
“Monday was very stressful, to say the least,” Ewart Shadoff added. “Just glad they arrived and needed three days of very great practice. I’m eager to begin.
“Obviously I’d have liked to have practiced a bit on Monday, however, the weather was probably the worst it has been, so that I do not feel I missed out on too much but it just raised my blood pressure a little bit to get a strong 24 hours.”
