EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France (AP) — Michelle Wie has withdrawn from The Evian Championship as she recovers from surgery to remove her appendix.

The 27-year-old Wie withdrew from the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open at Ottawa Hunt before the final round August 27 and had the surgery that night at Ottawa Hospital. The Evian Championship, the final major of the LPGA Tour season, begins September 14 in France.

“Unfortunately my doctors have advised me to continue resting which means I have to withdraw from @evianchamp next week,” Wie said Wednesday on social media. “It breaks my heart to do so because there is nothing more I want right now than to be able to compete.
