After calling time on her tennis career, Ashleigh Barty is set to try her hand at golf.
The former world number one is among the handful of star names announced for the upcoming Icons Series in July.
“It’s such a unique opportunity to have fun, test yourself and compete,” Barty said.
“I hope through my participation in the series that we can encourage more women and girls to participate in golf around the world.”
The first event in the Icon Series will take place at Liberty National in New Jersey in June.
