Defending champion Michelle Wie says she is “absolutely gut-wrenched” after making the “heartbreaking” decision to pull out of the Women’s World Championship in Singapore.

She failed to complete the first round because of a recurring wrist problem.

Wie, who had surgery on the injury in October, said an MRI scan on Thursday showed “nerve entrapment”.

“I made the decision on 15 to withdraw because at that point, I was unable to lift the club,” said the 29-year-old.

“After getting surgery, I had it in my mind that I was going to be completely pain free when I came back to Asia to defend my title.

“I was so ready to be pain free, I ignored a couple of warning signs. As a result of not listening to my body, I endured a bad flare-up during my round.

 

 

“Being in that amount of pain, I was scared that I could possibly do further damage.

“Deciding to withdraw during the tournament is always the hardest decision to make but it was heartbreaking.”

England’s Jodi Ewart Shadoff is in a five-way tie for second place, two shots off leader Amy Olson after two rounds.

American Olson, who carded a three-under-par 69, is seven under for the tournament.

Ewart Shadoff went round in 70 to move to five under, alongside Thailand’s Ariya Jutanugarn, Spain’s Azahara Munoz, South Korea’s Inbee Park and Australia’s Minjee Lee.

England’s Georgia Hall is level par after a second-round 71, while compatriots Charley Hull and Bronte Law are one over and three over respetively. Scotland’s Catriona Matthew is eight over.

The second round of the Oman Open has been suspended after sandstorms hit the course.

It was a blustery day in Muscat and Kurt Kitayama – who is among the leaders – played a shot onto the green at one point, only for the ball to be blown into a greenside bunker.

Phil Mickelson believes there was enough light to finish the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Sunday rather than take the tournament into a fifth day.

Mickelson had turned a three-shot deficit into a three-shot lead when play was suspended due to fading light at 5.55pm (1.55am GMT), with the American closing in on a fifth Pebble Beach victory.

The five-time major champion was six under after 16 holes and hopeful of completing his round, only for playing partner Paul Casey to stay firm and say it was too dark to continue.

“I wanted to try to finish tonight because I’m playing well,” Mickelson said. “We’ve got to finish it off, so I don’t want to jump the gun and look ahead [to a potential win].

“I get exactly where Paul [Casey] is coming from. It’s dark and we’re going to have a good chance tomorrow to come out on fresh greens and have them mown. They got pretty rough this afternoon so I totally get it.

“But I have pretty good vision, I can see fine, and I’m playing well, so I wanted to continue and that’s all there is to it.”

The final round started an hour late because of rain and then delayed two more hours due to a hail storm, leaving the final groups in a race against time to finish in daylight.

Casey lost his 54-hole lead and was level par on the 16th green when he felt it was too dark to putt, with the Englishman left with a four-foot putt for par when play resumes on Monday.

“I’m surprised we got this far [to the 16th green],” Casey said. “I think if there was an ability to finish all 18, we would keep going.

“I genuinely couldn’t see my putt there on 16. Mark Russell [PGA Tour rules official] gave us the option to finish, which is why I marked it. So hopefully I can see what I’ve got for par, knock that one in, and then I’m going to smash it straight at it.

“Really I need to go kind of minimum birdie-birdie or birdie-eagle and that might not be good enough, but that’s the plan.”
