Arrow **UPDATE!** ABI Spears is NOT retiring to be with her sick mom

I posted a news item in her thread in Team USA -- her Mom has brain cancer and Abi is retiring after the US Open to be with her.

We'll miss you, Abi!

****EDITED TO CHANGE TITLE ... So glad to see that article was wrong!!!!****

But I still hope her Mom can get well. It has to be so tough on Abi.

I could tell that something wasn't right when I saw her in Vancouver. She seemed so out of it.

Now I know why.

How sad

She'll be missed. She's a popular player on the tour, particularly with some of the Aussie girls. All the best to Abi, and I wish her mother all the best.
