Azahara Muñoz: "This break is a good chance to rest and spend time with my husband"
  • The San Pedro golfer has spent the coronavirus lockdown period in her home in Palm Beach, Florida

The pause in the world of golf is proving to be bittersweet for San Pedro golfer Azahara Muñoz. While she has been keen to put right her bad start to the season, Muñoz feels privileged that in her home, in Palm Beach (Florida), she seems to have avoided the strict lockdown experienced by many of her colleagues in Europe: "The last two months have been weird but I can't complain too much. In Spain it has really been a quarantine."

Muñoz has even been able to play golf during this time. Though courses were closed in the municipality where she lives, the course where she normally trains is just across the border and remained open, albeit with strict protocols in place.

"I've been lucky. I've been able to train but it's difficult to know what level I'm at because I haven't been able to compete and have been without my coach," she says.

While Muñoz is annoyed by a "lost year" in her career (she plans to become a mother), she is choosing not to get bogged down by it: "This is giving me a chance to rest and be home with my husband, which I've never done for such a long time."
