No Sorenstam exemption for Michelle Wie this year

Don’t look for Michelle Wie at this year’s Ginn Tribute hosted by Annika Sorenstam.

Wie did not seek an exemption into the event she played a year ago, the tournament said. Last May, Wie, citing a wrist injury, withdrew after playing 16 holes of her opening round.

Wie said she left because of her wrist and not because she was two-shots shy of the LPGA Tour’s “88” rule. That would have banned her from further tour exemptions until the following season for shooting an 88 or higher.

Wie, however, was seen practicing at the LPGA Tour’s next stop.

This year, tournament exemptions went to LPGA rookie Ashleigh Simon from South Africa and Duke golfer Alison Whitaker.

The tournament takes place at RiverTowne Country Club from May 29-June 1.
