The #1 woman golfer will not play the LPGA Tour for at least a month due to a ruptured disk.
REUNION, Fla. — Annika Sorenstam withdrew Thursday from the Ginn Open because of a ruptured disk in her back that will keep her from playing on the LPGA Tour for at least a month.
“I’ve been playing with quite a bit of pain for the past several weeks,” Sorenstam said in a statement. “I couldn’t take it much more and decided it was time to see someone after the pro-am yesterday. I withdraw with deep regret.”
Sorenstam, 36, said doctors in south Florida discovered a ruptured disk and a bulging disk. She said she would see a neurosurgeon in Miami later Thursday to figure out what to do next.
She still plans to open her Annika Academy at Ginn Reunion Resort on Monday.
Back injuries to pro golfers are quite common. Take all the time you need Annika and get well The LPGA will still be there when you’re healthy.(Cross your fingers)
