The 2018 season started strong for Michelle Wie, but the late summer months haven’t been as kind. She won the third event of the season and finished in the top 15 five other times before having to withdraw from the Ricoh Women’s British Open in the middle of the first round, siting injury to her right wrist.

Now, after a month of rest and rehab, Wie has announced that her wrist is not recovered enough to allow her to play in the Evian Championship. She took to Instagram to notify her fans:

Her long-time instructor Dave Leadbetter said in a text that it is “nerve damage due to bone spurs.”
