Suzann Pettersen will take another tournament off this week to rest her ailing left shoulder, but she told Monday that she’s looking to return at the Kingsmill Championship in two weeks.

Pettersen withdrew before the third round of the Lotte Championship two weeks ago with shoulder pain while in contention there.

She went to San Francisco last week to try to play the Swinging Skirts Classic, but she withdrew before Wednesday’s pro-am after experiencing discomfort warming up on the range.

She originally intended to play the Volunteers of America North Texas Shootout this week but returned to her Orlando home to give the injury more rest.

“It’s nothing serious, there’s just some inflammation,” Pettersen said. “It’s something I’ve been dealing with.”

Pettersen said she didn’t hurt her shoulder making a swing. She said she’s dealing with wear and tear. She is on anti-inflammatories and has a team of doctors and a physical therapist working with her.
