Wie set to have appendix surgery


OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Michelle Wie of Honolulu was set to have surgery Sunday to remove her appendix.

Wie withdrew before the final round of the LPGA Canadian Pacific Open and was taken to Ottawa Hospital for the surgery.

“Further details on her condition will be provided when available,” her agency, IMG, said in a statement.

The 27-year-old Wie was tied for 23rd, six strokes behind leaders Mo Martin and Nicole Broch Larsen after three rounds at Ottawa Hunt.

Wie was 1-2-0 last week in the United States’ Solheim Cup victory over Europe in Iowa. She is 30th in the world and has seven top-10 finishes this season.
