Michelle Wie West and her decision to retire surprised many. West, the legend of women's golf, did not have many dilemmas. She desired to fully embrace the role of motherhood and dedicate more time and attention to their daughter.
After she confirmed last year that the US Open will be her last tournament this year, many were disappointed. However, it seems that West could return to her greatest love sometime in the future. During an interview with TMZ Sports, West revealed what her life looks like after retirement; “Not playing more golf.
Just living life with my daughter and working on a few projects”. - West said. West has been busy with many things in her life, so she doesn't spend time practicing. "I definitely don’t practice, that’s for sure.
I just play. ” - she continued. West got an interesting question, and her answer made many laugh; How does she relax? "I’m a mum, I don’t relax!” The most interesting question that followed, one that captivates golf fans the most, is whether she has any plans to make a comeback in the future.
“Never say never, but probably not”.

The 2026 edition of the US Women's Open has certainly caught her attention. West openly acknowledged her interest in such a possibility. Nevertheless, it's not a concrete confirmation of her return to golf.
She recognizes the unpredictability of life and the challenges of making long-term plans. West is leaving the door open to a potential comeback, as she's aware that the future holds many opportunities. Many fans hold hope that West might showcase her skills on the biggest stage once more.
