Solheim Cup captain Catriona Matthew has focused on the American Senior Women's Open Title after announcing that she will end her 25-year stay on the LPGA Tour.

The Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational in July will be the 49-year-old Scot & # 39; s last regular LPGA event on American soil.

"This is my 25th year at the LPGA and I decided it was time," she said.

"I" I'm not stopping, I play in Europe and I like to play in the US Senior Open next year, I'm trying to win my focus. "

Dame Laura Davies won the US Senior Women & # 39; s Inauguration Open last year with 10 shots and will defend the title this week.

Matthew hopes to lead Europe to Solheim Cup in September at home in Gleneagles.

And, while she will not continue with the main tour, she will play the Women & # 39; s British Open and Ladies Scottish Open this year, co-approved by the LPGA and Ladies Eur opean Tour.

Matthew achieved four LPGA Tour victories, including the British Open in 2009, but dropped to 197 on the world ranking.

Ahead of the La Reserva de Sotogrande Invitational, she said : "I have had a good career and everything is ending.

"It just touched me and I thought & # 39; this is it & # 39; I missed the cut in LA about a month ago and realized that I was fed up with the routine of being week-in, week-out and then go back home and have to practice with the children. It has just become old. "
