Wie's management company, IMG Golf, announced Saturday that the reigning U.S. Women's Open champion has a stress reaction in a bone in her right index finger and will be sidelined for three to five weeks.
IMG Golf released the following statement from Wie, who will also miss the Canadian Women's Open:
