Michelle Wie announced she will miss 3-5 weeks of competitive golf due to a stress reaction in a bone of the index finger on her right hand, which includes next weeks LPGA Championship.
After withdrawing from the Meijer LPGA Classic on Thursday, Wie was examined by hand surgeon Dr. Tom Graham in Cleveland, who made the diagnosis.
“I was looking forward to playing the next three weeks,” Wie said. “It’s honestly one of my favorite stretches on tour. It’s extremely disappointing to miss these events, but I am relieved to have a proper diagnosis. Seven years ago, I would have tried to play through this injury and it is important to me not to make that mistake again.”
