Michelle Wie to skip LPGA’s first major of 2007

The news doesn’t surprise me.

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – Michelle Wie will not play the Kraft Nabisco Championship next week while she recovers from a wrist injury, the first LPGA Tour major championship she has missed in two years.

Wie injured her right wrist during a fall last month.

“While the rehabilitation of her wrist is on schedule, Michelle wants to make sure she gives fans everything she can the next time she steps on the course,” said Jesse Derris of Ken Sunshine Consultants, a public relations firm the Wie family has hired to handle press inquiries. “She’s not there yet.”


Her next appearance is expected to be in Orlando, Fla., the week after the Masters.

I’d be very surprised if Michelle plays in Orlando. My own predicition is she’ll be out till mid-spring at least. Both her wrists are injured, there is no sense exasperating their condition by coming back too soon.
