Suzann Pettersen withdrew from the Lotte Championship before the start of the third round Friday because of pain in her left shoulder.
“After consulting with my physio and my medical team, we decided to give it a couple days of rest,” Pettersen told the LPGA.
Pettersen was tied for 16th entering the third round, seven shots off the lead. She’s No. 7 in the Rolex Women’s World Rankings. She started last year No. 2 in the world but battled through shoulder and back injuries in the first half of the season.
