Michelle Wie undergoes emergency surgery

Michelle Wie was forced to withdraw ahead of the final round of the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open after requiring emergency surgery to remove her appendix.

The 27-year-old was six shots off the lead after rounds of 71-67-70 in Ottawa. However, her management company, IMG, released the following statement shortly after.

“Michelle Wie will have surgery to remove her appendix today at Ottawa Hospital. Further details on her condition will be provided when available.”

Wie was forced to withdraw from an event last month as well, after exiting the US Women’s Open after two rounds due to muscle spasms in her neck.

So far this season, Wie has seven top ten finishes in 17 starts, including a third-place finish at the recent Ricoh Women’s British Open.


Update: Michelle Wie tweeted following what she described as a 'scary' 24 hours in hospital.
