The LPGA Tour is back, and so is Stacy Lewis – on the course and on Twitter.

America’s top female golfer is teeing it up Thursday at the LPGA Tour’s first event of 2014, the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic. At No. 3 in the world, she’s the highest-ranked golfer in the field. And she wants to converse with you on Twitter again.

Back in October, as Lewis was battling China’s Shanshan Feng in the final round Reignwood LPGA Classic in Beijing, she grew annoyed with Chinese fans who found it difficult to stay quiet as players shot and actually cheered when Lewis missed putts. After losing to Shanshan on a pretty miraculous shot, Lewis took to Twitter to voice her displeasure, and was roundly criticized. So she abandoned the social media outlet.

But now she’s back dishing out 140-character thoughts. Her tweets from October were deleted, and she sent out a few innocuous ones in December, but she officially announced her return to Twitter on Tuesday.

 
That first Q&A is Thursday afternoon, after she finishes up her first round in the Bahamas.

 
Welcome back, Stacy.
