PHOENIX (AP) -- Hall of Famer Nancy Lopez plans to stop playing tournaments full time at the end of this season, her 25th on the LPGA Tour.
"I am not walking away from golf," Lopez said Wednesday before playing in the pro-am of the Ping Banner Health, the LPGA's second tournament of the season. "I am at the beginning of a brand-new chapter in my golf career."
She said she would compete in selected tour events and will take part in corporate tournaments, course design and work to develop new ideas for her namesake club line.
"I still have the fire," Lopez said.
