The 20-year-old Tokyo Olympian made this known in a post Thursday, also announcing of her last tournament for the year.

“I’m back! Just in time for the last event of the year,” the Fil-Japanese golfer said.

“Looking forward to a great week at the @cmegrouptourchamp to wrap up the season.”

The Philippine Golf Tour revealed in a social media post last Oct. 25 that Saso’s Instagram has been hacked and advised the public to refrain from responding to any messages or clicking web links shared by the account.

They also asked the public to report to Instagram the cyber-attack on Saso’s account to get a quick reponse.

As of this writing, Saso is on her first round in the CME Group Tour Championship in Naples, Florida where she competes for the lion’s share of the $5 million total cash purse in 72 holes.
