Wie, still recovering from surgery, out of Evian

RSS

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.

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.
