Earlier this year, Dame Laura Davies was pretty down on her golf game. She’d struggled at the AIG Women’s British Open at Walton Heath and hurt her wrist a bit. The struggle continued at the U.S. Senior Women’s Open.

Golfweek spoke to Davies ahead of the Solheim Cup about her future plans.

“I’m down to play the British Open at St. Andrews,” said Davies of 2024. “It’s my very last one because I‘m 60, obviously, and my exemption runs out. If I play any decent golf leading up to that I might enter it, but I’m leaving it open for that. If you’re not enjoying it there’s no point, and I didn’t enjoy what I played in this year.”

But, as she said then, the summer of 2024 is still a long time away, and there’s a chance she might “find a bit of game” before next August and “fancy going out in style.”

“To play St. Andrews as your very last professional tournament would be quite something, wouldn’t it?” she asked.

It’s what a legend deserves.
