Responding to this Boutier said,I don’t know what to say other than that it’s completely false. Leona is a player that I respect enormously, even more so in the Solheim Cup. We have known each other very well, since university. I don’t see any personal or professional reason not to want to play with her. It’s even the opposite, it’s an honor to play with her.”
