Michelle Wie has a finger injury that forced her to withdraw from LPGA Championship next week at Monroe Golf Club and will sideline her at three to five weeks.

IMG Golf said Saturday that Wie has a stress reaction in a bone in her right index finger. The U.S. Women's Open champion withdrew from the Meijer LPGA Classic on Thursday in Michigan after playing nine holes in the first round.

IMG said she was examined by hand surgeon Dr. Tom Graham of the Cleveland Clinic.

Graham, who worked with Wie in 2007 when she broke her wrist, said Wie has developed an "acute-on-chronic" injury influenced by the volume in which she practices and plays.

Wie won the U.S. Women's Open on June 22 for her second victory of the year and fourth on the LPGA Tour.
