Michelle Wie won’t be able to build on the major championship momentum she created in Scotland this summer.
Wie announced Wednesday that she is withdrawing from next week’s Evian Championship as she needs more time to recover from the appendectomy she underwent on Aug. 27.
Wie tied for third at the Ricoh Women’s British Open the week before she withdrew from the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open to have emergency surgery to remove her appendix.
Unfortunately my doctors have advised me to continue resting which means I have to withdraw from @evianchamp next week. It breaks my heart to do so because there is nothing more I want right now than to be able to compete. I love the Evian Championship and it holds a special place in my heart. I grew up playing this championship and I can't wait to get back next year. As soon as the docs say I’m fully recovered, I will be back practicing and playing, but for now I’m going to listen to them and lay low. Hope everyone in Florida stays safe during this hurricane
It’s been a resurgent year for Wie, 27, who has been plagued by injury and illness through her career. She withdrew from the U.S. Women’s Open this year with a neck injury. She has finished fourth or better in five of her last 10 starts.
