Stanford, No. 7 on the LPGA money list and third in the Solheim Cup standings, decided not to play in Rochester, N.Y., this week and is not sure when she will return pending the recovery of her mother, Nan Stanford.
The U.S. Womens Open is in two weeks at Saucon Valley near Philadelphia.
My moms health and happiness are the most important things for me and my family, Stanford said. Were doing everything we can to make sure of that and help her recovery.
