In her second outing since leaving a Russian prison, WNBA star Brittney Griner went to the WM Phoenix Open golf event on Saturday, according to NBC News.

Around 200,000 spectators watched the action from the stadium’s 16th hole throughout the competition, including Griner.

Griner made her public debut at the Martin Luther King Jr. march in downtown Phoenix last month.

Griner will miss the USA Basketball training camp in Minnesota in order to spend more time with her wife and focus on her recovery. Griner was returned to the United States in a high-profile, dramatic prisoner swap in December after being held for over ten months, ESPN reported.

While still an unregistered free agent, Brittney Griner has declared that she will play for the Phoenix Mercury once again this year. She hasn’t discussed her plans for playing on the international stage or maybe competing in the Paris Olympics in 2016.
