Wie Out for the Rest of the Season

In case you somehow missed it, Michelle Wie's wrist finally got the better of her. She's fought it all year, taking cortisone shots, skipping events to rest and rebuilding her swing again, all in hopes of avoiding surgery. Alas, it was not to be. The deed is done and she's done for the year.




I think John Mayer once said, “Someday, everything will make perfect sense. So for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears, be strong and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason.” ☺️ A lot of people have been asking me what’s been going on with my hand and I haven’t shared much, because I wasn’t sure what was going on myself. After countless MRI’s, X-rays, CT scans, and doctor consultations, I was diagnosed with having a small Avulsion Fracture, bone spurring, and nerve entrapment in my right hand. After 3 cortisone injections and some rest following the British Open, we were hoping it was going to be enough to grind through the rest of the season, but it just wasn’t enough to get me through. So I made the decision after Hana Bank to withdraw from the rest of the season, come back to the states, and get surgery to fix these issues. It’s been disheartening dealing with pain in my hand all year but hopefully I am finally on the path to being and STAYING pain free! Happy to announce that surgery was a success today and I cannot wait to start my rehab so that I can come back stronger and healthier than ever. Huge thank you to Dr. Weiland’s team at HSS for taking great care of me throughout this process and to all my fans for your unwavering support. It truly means the world to me. ❤️ I’ll be back soon guys!!!! Promise 🤝

Personally, I think it shows just how tough and how determined Michelle is to play. Say what you like about her lack of wins, she's been dogged by injuries since her teen years and yet she just keeps coming back. Hopefully she'll start next year the way she started this one, with a win.

In the meantime, get well soon, Wiesy!
