Griner was one of nearly 200,000 fans at the WM Phoenix Open in Scottsdale, Arizona, which is a PGA Tour tournament.

He watched from the ballpark’s 16th hole, according to The Associated Press.

Griner skipped USA Basketball’s training camp in Minnesota earlier this week so he could spend time with his wife and recover from a 10-month prison sentence in Russia.

USA Basketball coach Cheryl Reeve told The AP on Monday that she had not yet spoken to Griner, but the organization has made it clear that she can take her time deciding if she wants to return to the national team.

«We’ve missed her and when she’s ready we’ll welcome her back,» Reeve said.
