Michelle Wie will sit out the remainder of the LPGA Tour season due to a lingering wrist issue, she announced through Twitter on Friday.

Wie returned sooner than expected from the wrist injury for last week's Women's PGA Championship and was seen icing her wrist during play. She shot 84-82 to miss the cut by 17 shots. The 29-year-old broke into tears after her first round and questioned her future in the sport.

She underwent surgery on her wrist in October and attempted to come back in mid-April.

Wie's professional golf career began before her 16th birthday. The five-time LPGA Tour winner claimed the 2014 U.S. Women's Open but has collected only a single victory since.
