SYDNEY (AP) - Eight-time LPGA Tour winner Rachel Hetherington is returning to professional golf after a four-year retirement.

Australian Ladies Professional Golf said in a statement on Sunday that the 42-year-old Australian started working with a new coach, Randall Hollands Smith, last April.

Hetherington will play the Australian circuit, and hopes to compete in the Australian Ladies Masters and the Women’s Australian Open over the next two months.

She has no plans to return to the LPGA Tour, saying: “I would miss family and clients too much.”

The Australian won $5.7 million in prize money during her LPGA Tour career. Three of her titles came in playoffs over former No. 1 Annika Sorenstam.
