DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA, April 27, 2012 – LPGA and World Golf Halls of Fame member Se Ri Pak announced today that she is sidelined indefinitely with a slight tear in the labrum of her left shoulder. The 25-time LPGA winner had an MRI on Thursday and will begin rehabilitation immediately with hopes of avoiding surgery. Pak slipped on stairs Tuesday, injuring her shoulder while bracing her fall against a railing. She withdrew from this week's Mobile Bay LPGA Classic.
“Right now, there is no timeline for my return to the LPGA, but I know the next two months of rehab will be important for my recovery,” said Pak. “I have a positive outlook and I fully expect to return to the LPGA Tour as soon as the time is right. I would like to thank the medical staff of the LPGA, the staff at Springhill Medical Center in Mobile, Alabama, and Dr. Andrews and his staff at the Andrews Institute for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine for their excellent care. I would also like to thank the fans for their support and concern.”
