BELMONT, Mich — U.S. Open champion Michele Wie has withdrawn from the Meijer LPGA Classic at Blythefield Country Club.

Wie was 5 over par on the 9th hole when she decided to walk off the course. Wie gave the following statement on her injury:

I don’t know what happened. It just kind of started hurting last week and just started getting worse and got to the point where I couldn’t really hold a club today. So i’m just going to try and get an MRI right know and see what my next steps are. Hopefully I can play next week, so we’ll see.
