Five-time LPGA winner Michelle Wie West says she was ready to retire until former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani made offensive comments about her, and it hardened her will to comeback.
Wie West, who is Korean-American, says she was ready for family time with her baby daughter.
However, she says her decision to return came when Giuliani made what she called sexually offensive remarks about her on a podcast.
Wie West said she's willing to have difficult conversations as she wants her daughter to grow up in a world where women athletes are seen as equal to their male counterparts.
