U.S. Women's Open champ Michelle Wie has a finger injury which has forced her to withdraw from next week's LPGA Championship. The injury will sideline her for three to five weeks. Her representatives, IMG Golf, say that Wie has a stress reaction in a bone in her right index finger. She withdrew from the Meijer LPGA Classic on Thursday in Michigan after playing nine holes in the first round.
