Gerina Piller is pregnant and won’t be back to the LPGA for the start of 2018

Gerina Piller is pregnant, expecting her first child with fellow pro golfer and husband Martin Piller.

Piller revealed the pregnancy as part of a story in the New York Times. Piller, who is expected to give birth in May 2018 per Golf Channel, won't on the LPGA Tour for the start of the new season in January 2018 in the Bahamas.

The 32-year-old made clear to the Times that she isn't intending to walk away from the LPGA and professional golf as a result of her pregnancy. However, Piller also didn't divulge a plan for when she would come back to the LPGA.

Piller has yet to win on the LPGA, and she's widely considered among the best, if not the best, player on the tour without a win. She's won $3.5 million in official money in her career.

Martin regained his PGA Tour status through the Tour Finals, making three cuts in five starts, including a T-4 finish at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.
