Michelle Wie sprained her ankle originally during the Solheim Cup, the competition the American women play against the European women.  she received treatment for it then, and returned to competitive play.  Last week, at the age of 20, she won her first LPGA tournament.

She will not win her second this weekend.  I just watched the highlights of the first round of the LPGA Tour Championship and witnessed Michelle's limping and awkward play after she slipped on the 13th hole.  She sought treatment for the sprain after finishing her round, an even par 72, but withdrew from the competition about an hour later.

Lorena Ochoa tops the leaderboard with a 66 after the first round.
