Lorena Ochoa admitted it is unlikely we will see her on the LPGA Tour again – but refused to rule out the prospect of a return to the game.

The Mexican spent 158 weeks as world No.1 before suddenly announcing her retirement in 2010 at the age of just 28.

Since then she has been working with Mexican professionals and has made only a handful of competitive appearances.

However, speaking after she was inducted into the LPGA Hall of Fame, Ochoa said she did not want to rule out a return to the circuit in the future.

But the 40-year-old insisted any potential comeback is several years away.

“I don’t know,” she said.

“I don’t want to say no because maybe two, three years I will come and play with Gaby [Lopez] and have a good time. I do see maybe playing in the senior, you know, in the Senior Tour, just coming back and playing couple tournaments just to enjoy.

“I’m going to do that, I like to do it right. So I don’t see myself practicing for the next six months, five, six hours a day, because it’s not what would make me happy right now.

“I have other priorities, and it’s time to spend as much time with my kids and continue working with the foundation while I have the energy and strength.

“We can have this talk in eight or nine years and we’ll see.”
