Hannah back in action, hungry for majors

Hannah Green on the Evian Championship 2019 on Wednesday.

There were obligations in the media on Tuesday afternoon and more TV interviews were scheduled immediately after Wednesday's pro-am.

She is used to an afternoon tee-time on Thursday, but this week the West Australian Korean superstars JY Ko and Jeongeun Lee6 have drawn in the morning's marquee group.

She is the same old person, but 22-year-old great champion Hannah Green is slowly realizing that life on the LPGA Tour is very different.

Green is happy to be on tour for the first time since her heroic deeds in Hazeltine.

She is one of five Aussies preparing for this week's Evian Championship, the fourth major women's golf of 2019 and the British Open of AIG Women next week at Woburn, the fifth and final major.

That means that Green stores it in three straight majors without regular touring events in between, but to her that sounds more like an opportunity than an inconvenience.

"I certainly did not expect to win that early and I certainly did not expect a big one as my first event," Green said Wednesday at the Evian.

"It is clear that we are back at Evian and congratulate everyone, so it sinks much more than at home.

"Things are great, but I want to make sure that I don't get ahead of myself, I want to put myself in that position again."

Hannah & # 39; s mother Susan is next week with her daughter in France, making sure that Hazeltine doesn't happen anymore without someone from the family present to see it.

World No.25 spent most of her time in Perth between Mt Lawley Golf Club, reunited with friends and sharpen things with coach Ritchie Smith.

It was a full month, but one Green thinks she needed to relax.

"I spent four weeks at home, it's the longest I've been in two or three years, so it was really fun," said Green.

"One of the nights I went to the ladies pennant dinner just to say hello and to congratulate the" divvy "team on winning.

"Then I also did a junior clinic and then a Q&A for a member night, so it was really nice to see everyone."

But tomorrow is the time again for Green as the first of the five Australians on course.

The other Australians in this week's field are World No.4 Minjee Lee, Victoria & # 39; s Oh Oh, Sydneysider Sarah Kemp and Katherine Kirk of Queensland.
