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 🤝

The 29-year-old had bone spurs, nerve entrapment, and an avulsion fracture on her right hand.

The injury forced her to withdraw from the Women's British Open in August, and she didn't play again until two weeks ago at the UL International Crown.

Wie has suffered numerous injuries throughout her career, including neck, back, hip, knee, and ankle issues. She also had an emergency appendectomy in late 2017, forcing her to miss time.

"I don't think there is one joint or bone in her body that hasn't had some sort of injury or issue," her longtime coach David Leadbetter said earlier this year, according to Randall Mell of Golf Channel.
