Juli Inkster, one of the marquis players on the LPGA Tour and a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, has withdrawn from the CN Canadian Women's Open next week at London Hunt and Country Club, the Royal Canadian Golf Association confirmed today.

RCGA spokesperson Anthony Alfred said Tuesday he has not yet received an explanation from Inkster or the LPGA Tour.

The 36-year-old Inkster was among a group of LPGA stars who played at London Hunt in May and at the time, said she was very excited about playing in the Canadian Women's Open Aug. 10-13.

Inkster was one of the biggest-name players in the London field, along with Se Ri Pak, Lorie Kane, My Hyun Kim, Cristie Kerr and Natalie Gulbis.

In her long career, Inkster has won 30 times on the LPGA Tour, including seven major titles.

This year she has money winnings of $975,571 US and over her career has won $10 million US.
