2014 Notes: Hampered by injuries in 2014, she was 11th on the LPGA money list with $1,001,927 and 19th in CME points. It was the first time she was outside the top 10 in earnings since 2006. She made 23 cuts in 24 starts and had 10 top 10s, including a T-2nd at the Women's British Open. She was tied with Anna Nordqvist for the LPGA lead in GIR (77.1 percent). Among the injuries she suffered were a sore shoulder and a bulging disk in her back, which caused her to skip the Kia Classic and the ANA Inspiration. Swing coach David Leadbetter said Pettersen first noticed stiffness in her back after a workout the Monday prior to the Kia Classic. She was stricken with back spasms shortly after that. She was T-2nd at the Women's British Open, one shot back of winner Mo Martin after a final-round 75 in windy conditions at Royal Birkdale. She followed that with a solo third at the Meijer Classic. She finished 6th at the Evian Championship in defense of her 2013 title.
2015 Notes: Played in 23 events after being bothered by a shoulder injury early in the season, making 18 cuts with 10 top-10 finishes as she ranked 14th on the money list. With Butch Harmon as her new swing coach, won the Manulife Classic with a final-round 69 in windy conditions for a 22-under 266 total. It was her 15th career victory. Had two top-10s in majors, a 5th at the RICOH Women's British Open and T-7th at the KPMG Women's PGA Championship. She was T-2nd at the LET's Ladies Scottish Open, two strokes back of Rebecca Artis. Pettersen led by two after 36 holes of the 54-hole event. She was named to the European Solheim Cup team for the 8th time and was 2-2-0 in the matches.
2016 Notes: Played in 21 LPGA events making 19 cuts and 8 top-ten finishes. Started the year with 8 top-25 finishes in her first 11 events, the best a T-6th at the COATES Golf Championship. Finished 3rd at the Cambia Portland Classic, 5 back of Brooke Henderson. Had her best finish of the year at the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia finishing 3 back of winner Shanshan Feng.

She was second at the Lalla Meryem Cup on the Ladies European Tour, finishing one back of winner Klara Spilkova. Pettersen, who led by four strokes entering the final round, shot 71 in the final round and missed a 15-foot birdie putt on the last hole that would have forced a playoff. Played at the CME Group Tour Championship finishing T-11th. She won $507,398 for the year ranking 37th and 24th in the Race to CME.
2018 Notes: She decided to take some time off when she found out she was pregnant and due in August. But after the baby was born on August 8th she had no plans to return. At first, she wanted to play right away but then changed her mind. She hasn't played competitively since the 2017 CME Group. She will be a vice-captain for Solheim Cup captain Catriona Matthew and they plan on playing as a team in the LPGA's Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational in July. So the U.S. Women's Open would be her first event back in 1 year, 6 months and 11 days (or 557 days).
